Why I'm Here: I was born and raised in New York City. I joined the Army by choice, did corporate America for the profit, but was called to be a pastor and then later to move to Pittsburgh by the grace of God.
My DNA: I love hanging out with my family and I love all things social media, comic book, action adventure, and God. I tweet, facebook, blog, getglue, etc...etc... I am absolutely crazy about creatively expressing and sharing the truth about God and His word with others.
A Perfect Day: A perfect day is one where I can hang out with my family and check out all things social media while reading comic books on my way to an action adventure movie...or just any day hanging out with my church family, good times! #trueism
