I am a jail chaplain and preacher in southwest Michigan, and I am a pastor at a prison in Jackson, Michigan (prisons and jails are different classes of institutions). I taught philosophy for 13 years, where I was teaching at the University of Michigan – Dearborn, and the University of Detroit Mercy, when I decided to stop teaching in order to pursue other things. I am also a church praise band drummer, an amateur poet, filmmaker, painter, and sculptor, I play the didgeridoo, and practice some light forms of poverty and monasticism. Theologically I am a Calvinist and a universalist (GOD saves all people at the end of the world). I live in SW Michigan, and I love snow!
