Hi, I’m Brian.

I’m a former pastor, who was a former actor, and now a guy who communicates to, for, and about outsiders. Find out more about me here.

I’m a storyteller + artistic theologian + creative philosopher. Take a look around to find out more about that.

I’m all about the lifelong process of reimagining ourselves + our culture + our faith … maybe everything. You can click through to my blog, the Reimagining podcast, or get info about having me speak at your event. You can also check out what’s available in the store. Thanks for visiting.

Know yourself, reimagine everything, and be the peace.

The Antonym of Me: A Lenten Confession

Non-equivalent: Becoming “Non” for Lent | Week 3
