Husband. Father. Pilgrim. Author.
There are numerous words that help root and define our lives; these are among my favorites. Each seemingly distinct, they have individually and collectively transformed how I embrace the world and my place in it.
In my professional career, I am fortunate to work as Director of Sales and Marketing for a luxury hotelier. My blog posts share my personal insights and musings on hospitality marketing, planning, and strategic innovation. The opinions expressed on these pages do not reflect those of my employer.
SACRED STEPS: A PILGRIMAGE JOURNAL
My first book, Sacred Steps: A Pilgrimage Journal, is currently in development with a planned on-sale date of Easter 2022. I’m writing to share my first-hand accounts as a reluctant pilgrim navigating questions of faith along the world’s revered paths. The book follows my pilgrimage through Portugal and Spain on the Camino de Santiago, along the coast of the Pacific Ocean connecting California’s Missions Trail, across England’s ancient Pilgrims’ Way, and onward towards Rome via Europe’s forgotten footpaths on a journey of soulful discovery.
If you’re interested in book updates or a complimentary preview, please visit www.sacredstepsbook.com to register. There is no charge and members will receive some additional options for signed copies for the first-run publication in 2021.
ONE STEP THEN ANOTHER
In 2020 and 2021 I will be walking in pilgrimage along England’s ancient Pilgrims’ Way from London to Canterbury Cathedral. Afterward, I’ll begin the Via Francigena, the historic way in Europe connecting Canterbury to Rome. When I’m not in Europe, I’ll be walking sections of the California Mission Trail and the Florida Trail.
To follow my journeys or for assistance in planning your own, please join me online at One Step Then Another.
When I’m not hiking or working on my book, I volunteer time as a Scout Leader for the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts. I’m also fond of tacos, college football (#GoNoles), and beach bars.
