Hi! Thanks for visiting my website.

You want to pursue your potential and make the most of your life. I do, too! Problem is, what does that mean? Right? As a former pastor who joined the Catholic Church in 2011, I have studied everything from history and philosophy to theology and literature. I don’t claim to have all the answers, but I am convinced of this: making the most of my life ultimately means making much of Jesus Christ, the Jewish carpenter from Nazareth who proved himself to be God in the flesh. No experience of happiness or success is complete without his presence at the center of it.

In addition, for the last seven years, I've served as a writer, content marketer, and the co-host of a business and success podcast that consistently ranked in the top 5 podcasts in the world. I worked with a multi-millionaire business genius who scaled his nutritional supplement company to 9-figures and established a virtual community of overachieving entrepreneurs who are peak performers in every area of their lives. I've come to really appreciate people who are driven, ambitious, and committed to excellence in everything they do. I see how having vision, being disciplined, and cultivating mental toughness is a significant part of the pursuit of happiness and success.

So, whether in ministry or in business, I've been confronted time and time again with these question: what does it look like to pursue our potential? What does it mean to make the most of our lives?

That's the question that is at the heart of much of my writing and speaking. For me, that involves another question: "how do you pursue happiness and success in a way that is true, good, and beautiful?"

I'm glad that you have stopped by website and I hope that you will benefit from my attempts to answer those questions, whether its through my weekly Sunday Best newsletter, my book, or meeting with me 1-on-1.

Keep your eye out for Empowered Fellowship, my virtual community that is launching June 2021.

By the way, I live in Manhattan, Kansas, where I serve as Director of Development for St. Isidore's Catholic Student Center. My wife, Kasia, and I have four beautiful daughters; and we enjoy living in the greatest college town on the planet.

Peace to you,
