About Me

My experience of growing up in a small town and, in fact a subset of a small town called a mill village, formed within me a passion for community and compassion for those who have been historically disenfranchised. Serving under-privileged people has been the touchstone of my journey. In 23 years of full-time ministry as a Methodist pastor to heeding the call into full-time work in higher education, the work has been about serving students, colleagues and ultimately the community. It is deeply satisfying to match resources to need, matching people who have done well and now want to do good, with people who have great challenges. Unlocking potential is my passion.
