Six-poem sonnet sequence entitled Creche at The Foundling House.


My favorite part about teaching at Johnson is: Working with disciples of Jesus who desire to serve him and impact the world.

When I’m not teaching, I love to: Write.

In my classes, students can expect: An enthusiastic treatment of the subject as applied to life.

My best advice to a new student in my program is: Show up; speak out; set to.

Because of my influence, I most want my students to become: Lover of words and the Word.

The myth-busting truth about my discipline I most want people to understand is: The first question to ask of any artistic work: NOT “What does this piece mean?” BUT “What human experience does this piece relate?”

A quote that influences how I live is: The First Footnote of Life: “I’m probably wrong.”
