About Me

Experiences like getting disowned, being put through a hellacious divorce and enduring years of abuse (& many more experiences) made me feel invincible like, "If I can survive this, I can do anything." I created a nonprofit (www.evolventhrive.com). I started an event planning business. Most importantly to me, I became a writer and started speaking out.

At my core, I am a storyteller. I get fueled by sharing tales of growing up in the South, raising kids, coming out, and even living in a haunted house. My passion for storytelling has led me to write and speak on topics that I have experienced, studied, and overcome. One of my favorite things to do is to help people face complex change, which is something that I have mastered. 

The bottom line: I love sharing stories & helping people. I also love hanging out with my wife, kids, & friends, traveling, & learning.
