Story
Tagline
WordPress Developer. Bible Teacher. Navigator.
Introduction
Techno Geek Aficionado for Web Savvy Marketing where I keep the technical side of things running for our rapidly growing WordPress development company. 

My areas of responsibility include advanced website coding, overall coding quality assurance; theme audits; server setup, migrations and maintenance; training staff in best practices; managing customer support forums; creating marketing and training content; and other technical aspects required to keep a company moving forward.

Prior to joining the Web Savvy team I have been a life long professional navigator starting with ocean going cargo ships, then went on to US Navy jets. After changing careers from cargo operations in the maritime industry in 2007 I focused on creating easy to use WordPress websites and training folks, especially churches and ministries, how to use them to effectively attract more people.

In 2011 my wife and I moved to Colorado to attend a Bible college. Purposely Different is where I post thoughts and ideas on spiritual stuff. Check out the Purposely Different Podcast or subscribe in iTunes. In addition to my geeky side I am also an ordained minister.

What to Expect

  • WordPress info to help your online effectiveness
  • Spiritual thoughts from a Biblical perspective
  • Fun stuff that I find entertaining

Education

    Biblical Studies, Practical Ministry, 2011 - 2014

Over on Facebook the ONs outnumber the OFFs a factor of 8 or more to one. In my entirely unscientific survey anyway.

Tons of fireflies in the evenings here in Virginia. Shot this last night. They show up best in HD and there are a bit more of them in the second half of the video than the first half.

Just published a new article on Purposely Different. Today I look at how Jesus is unique in human history and why that is compelling evidence that God really does exist.
Jesus is unique in human history. His birth, life, teaching, death, and resurrection combine as compelling evidence that God really does exist.
