Founder and Chief Shenanigator

Hey there! So, picture this: I’m out in the woods, leading a group through a session of forest bathing, guiding sacred saunters, or maybe even constructing wild terrariums. Yep, that’s me – a certified nature therapy guide, outdoor chaplain, and retreat facilitator. My gig? Helping folks reconnect with the natural world and remember their kinship with it.

But let me rewind a bit. My journey hasn’t been your typical nine-to-five grind. From snapping aerial photos to teaching at Zoo Atlanta, and even leading in instructional technology, my path has been as wild and uncultivated as a thriving forest. Eventually, I found my way to Emory University’s Candler School of Theology, where I delved into progressive and liberation theologies, pastoral counseling, and contemplative practices.

Fast forward to today, and I’ve clocked countless hours leading spiritual practices everywhere from the Black Frest of Germany, the rich Maine Countryside, Little Rock, Arkansas, Dutch city parks and pubs to Zoom and Facebook. Currently, I’m soaking up life in The Netherlands with my wife, balancing my time as a nature therapy guide, digital landscape coordinator, and ecoSpiritual Leaders course guide at The BTS Center. Oh, and did I mention I’m also a certified outdoor life coach, labyrinth guide, and nature-partnered spiritual care provider? Yeah, I wear a lot of hats.

No matter where I am or what I’m doing, there’s always one thing driving me: the quest to align my deepest passions with the world’s greatest needs. Let’s journey together and see where our fiercely tender callings take us.
