At some point during my time at Furman University I picked up the nick name “Boots”.
I hated it at first, but slowly it grew on me.
By the time I traveled abroad for foreign study my junior year, I embraced the nickname and thought that “Traveling Boots” was a fitting title for this blog, which began as a space to document my travels. This name, seemingly generic, has fit well over the years as this site has been home to a variety of posts that reflect my interests as I travel through life.
I was born and raised in Conyers, Georgia, and after graduating from the Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology I attended Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina. In 2009, I graduated with a BA in Political Science, worked on a state-wide political campaign, and then headed to Duke Divinity School. I graduated with a Masters of Divinity from Duke Divinity School in May of 2012 and am currently serving as Minister of Discipleship at Hamilton Mill United Methodist Church in Dacula, Georgia. I also serve on the Board of Trustees of Salem Campmeeting.
The focus of my blog has shifted over the years, and it now focuses upon theology and my experiences in ministry.
I’ve been an amateur photographer for six years taking photographs for myself, friends, clients, and other organizations like Furman University and Camp Rockmont. On this site, most of the photos showcased in my blog posts are my own.
