May the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
A few things about me and my family…My wife Karen and I have three boys ~ Trevor (20), Carter (22) and Jacob (22). Spending quality time together with my family is a high priority.
I grew up fourth in a family of five children on the coast of New England. Somehow three of us have found a trail to Texas. My only brother has made Austin his home for nearly 20 years, and I have a sister who holds a degree from UT, Austin. Boating, tennis, and baseball have been features of family-life for generations. (So, it came as a welcome surprise to discover that Friendswood inhabits the third largest boating community in the US!) 
In college the Lord found me and issued his call to “follow Me.” Ordained 29 years ago, I’ve served in Ohio, Colorado, and, Virginia. I love the Episcopal way of being Christian, our rich Anglican heritage, and the worldwide Communion that binds us together. I also am partial to racquet sports, gardening, and good conversation with friends.
