Bienvenidxs | Welcome
I’m an artist in ministry who believes in the soft power of beauty, color, and creativity to engage and transform.
I believe in our liberal faith tradition and in our capacity to inspire, challenge, and support people to grow spiritually while working to create “the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.”
The religious landscape is rapidly changing, and in order for our congregations to thrive, we need a new model that is more relevant and engaging.
I’m on a mission to re-vitalize the religious life, infusing it with rituals of beauty and celebration; rejoicing in the power of the community when we come together.
I strongly believe that the creative process and the experiences of joy and wonder are not only essential for our humanity but are also needed for resisting social injustices and to create a vibrant future for our faith tradition.
"The role of the artist is to make the revolution irresistible."

The Art of Ministry
I identify as an artist in ministry, and I’m passionate about creating uplifting, multi-sensory worship experiences that help us re-connect to the sacred in our lives.
I also believe it’s important to incorporate liturgical elements that engage the multiple ways in which people learn and experience the sacred.
My Call is:
∞ to create the conditions that lead to the flourishing of all life, to the wholeness of human beings;
∞to create heaven here on earth, by which I mean, to do the work of social justice to remove the obstacles that oppress all forms of life on this planet AND to realize that “earth is crammed with heaven!”
∞ to facilitate the practices that address the longings/impulses that human-beings have to worship, to experience awe, to give gratitude, to live fully the human experience, and to live in community.
