"A Way With Words"


From my earliest memory, I've always known that I wanted to be a writer. I've been told by many people throughout the years that I have a "way with words." I never thought twice about being a writer until some guidance counselor in high school told me, "Writers never make any money. You'll need a real career if you want to make it." Despite those dire warnings, I continued to pursue my dream of writing for a living - and ever since, my "way with words" has paid the bills and then some over the years.


Here I am, years away from that "sage" advice from the guidance counselor - a published author, a successful writer, an accomplished speaker, a spiritual director, and pastor. My experiences over the years have been wide and varied. I have been a news reporter and writer, a news anchor, an editor, and so much more in the media business. I have extensive experience in public relations and other marketing industries. I continue to make my living in PR, while pastoring part time in Columbia, South Carolina.


On this site, I am bringing all of my skills together in one place so that I can help people, whether they need a to hire a writer, a speaker or a spiritual director.


Please feel free to contact me to book me as a speaker at an event or if I can help with any of your writing projects.
