I am a native Floridian. A native Orlandoan, even–though the word “Orlandoan” just looks funny. I was born 28 days before Walt Disney World opened, so I don’t know Orlando “BD” except through stories my relatives have shared. I have lived in the Orlando area for most of my life. I am a proud graduate of the University of Central Florida, and I am in the home stretch of my seminary education as I prepare for ordination as a minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). I work part-time for Central Florida Presbytery as an admin assistant. I am married to Ellen (a wonderful gal!) since 2005. We have no kids, but two cats–Skittish, and Not-so-Skittish (Notso for short).
