After designing at USAID and Google, he’s brought that creative spirit to found or lead alternative faith communities, and experiences. Recently, he designed the Lenten experience “Faithing Your Practices” in DC, founded Sparks-DC where people are challenged each week to take one positive risk, and engaged in participatory leadership Borough Commons in the UK. He also co-leads the Emergent Conversation and Iona DC communities. He loves contemplative practice whether in writing, drumming, singing, dancing, and more. He has served as music minister, youth pastor, and college worker in churches around the world.
