WRITER (MA International Studies, MA Religious education)

As a lifelong practical idealist, I work to make things better through my actions and my writing.

Therefore, after more than 10 years in corporate and nonprofit communications, marketing and special events planning, I earned an MA in International Studies from the Josef Korbel School at the University of Denver
-- a global "top 11" graduate program -- to be better equipped to understand and contribute to our world.

I graduated summa cum laude in 2011 with concentrations in Communications and Human Security -- plus coursework in Global Health, Economic Development, and Conflict Resolution.

Subsequently, I worked for four years as a Proposal Writer/Editor for private companies in the DC Metro Area that provide a variety of services to the U.S. Government.

And now? I'm launching a blog, "Leaving Religion, Keeping God" -- which will become the foundation of a book based on my decades of experience as a devout, seminary-trained Christian who left organized religion without jettisoning spirituality or relationship with a transcendent Creator. Specifically ...

In 2007, after 20 years of working for Christian organizations -- including the international nonprofit Focus on the Family, a startling research challenge convinced me that the foundations for organized religion are based on:

  • Ignorance of Earth's "ancient ancient" history.
  • Misunderstandings of ancient events (especially those involving encounters with technologically advanced individuals and civilizations).
  • Millennia-long institutional suppression of historical and scientific facts that threaten dominant religious and political agendas.

I believe that stated beliefs mean little, whereas actions are everything. I also believe that human rights apply to all people, without exception.

I support nonprofits that work to (1) stop the sex trafficking of children and women (and other forms of slavery, violence, and oppression), (2) promote reconciliation and peacemaking, resource sustainability, and the education of girls in developing countries, and (3) develop workable solutions to the inequalities that plague our planet.
