I am a deacon at Christ Church Cathedral, Chaplain to Liturgical Ministries & Assistant to the Dean for Liturgy, and the director of development and communications at theCrisis Centre of BC.
Born on the territories of the Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc people (Kamloops, BC), I was raised in the Roman Catholic Church and moved to Coast Salish territories (Vancouver, BC) in 2006. I joined the Anglican Church as a member of St. James’ Anglican, Vancouver while studying at the Vancouver School of Theology in 2006.
I have worked in communications and engagement for most of my professional career and hold a BA in history, an MA in theology, and an MA in cultural studies. I also hold a number of professional certificates in public relations, leadership and facilitation, conflict resolution, fundraising, public consultation, and public policy.
I am also a member of the Society of Catholic Priests, which aims to promote catholic spirituality and evangelism within Anglicanism.
What I do here
I am the Chaplain to Liturgical Ministries & Assistant to the Dean for Liturgy. In my role as Chaplain, I support the ministries of the Servers Guild and Altar Guild, and I take a leadership role in the planning of Cathedral liturgies.
I can often be found in one of my favourite fitness classes at the YMCA or reading books on topics such as deconstruction, poststructuralism, queer theory, critical race theory, and theology.
Christ Church Cathedral gathers, worships, and serves on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and Səl̓ilwətaʔɬ nations
