Originally from the small town of Jasper, Florida, I never imagined that I would end up here: a 27 year old gay man living in New Jersey. Having recently completed a Master of Divinity at Princeton Theological Seminary in addition to a Bachelor of Science in Practical Theology and a Master of Arts in Ministerial Leadership from Southeastern University, I am moving on to complete a Master of Social Work at Rutgers University. I know, I know…I am a professional student it seems. But I really do want to use these skills in a way that brings holistic hope, healing, and love to those with whom I work! As I learn how to navigate diverse worlds, I hope to learn how to integrate them, be my full self, love and embrace others to the best of my abilities, and live a whole hearted life.
