About Me

I’m a writer, editor, and artist, and I also happen to be an ordinand in the Anglican Church in North America. I’ve been on a long journey for over twenty years, searching out “the ancient paths… where the good way is” (Jeremiah 6:16). On this site, you’ll find my many musings on art, imagination, liturgy, and Christian spirituality, as well as ways for us to connect. Walk with me for a bit of the journey.


Lights along the path

  • Keeping the Faith in Solitude
    We stand on the shoulders of Christians who, over the centuries, sought and encouraged times of silence and solitude. During this time of quarantine, here are my suggestions for maintaining, and even growing, our relationship with God:
  • Epiphany Light in the Dark of Winter
    The days are short, the nights are long, and many of us feel the brunt of the season on our bodies and minds, but if we are hardy enough to step out into the cold, we get a glimpse of our galaxy on moonless nights that makes a word like “splendor” feel understated.
  • The Isles | One Year Later
    I can’t believe it has been a year since my friend Kyle and I packed our bags and made the transatlantic journey to Ireland and England. In many ways, it feels like just a few days since I was last walking the streets of the cities I so quickly came to love.

St Caedmon’s ABbey

Inspired by the spiritual, artistic, and efforts of the early Celtic and Benedictine houses in the British Isles, St Caedmon’s is an online abbey for cultivating art, story, knowledge, and Christian spirituality.

Proofreading Services

I love helping you express your ideas clearly. I have been proofreading for years in professional and academic circles, and I can’t wait to help you succeed in your writing! During my time in college and grad school, I proofread for many students and even a few professors. I have also written and proofread articles, instructional material, and marketing copy for several businesses and organizations.

When I receive your article or paper, I will review your grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Because I’m committed to helping you succeed, all three price levels will also get you some helpful notes on clarity, structure, and style. The higher the price level, the more I’m able to flesh out how you can be the best writer you can be.

I look forward to working with you!
