About Me I'm a writer, activist and minister. I founded the Tenderness Tour in 1989 and have traveled over 3,000 miles by wheelchair raising awareness on child abuse/domestic violence issues. I'm the author of "The Hallelujah Life" and actively involved in multiple violence prevention programs. I'm also a film critic and the founder of The Independent Critic.

Wild Fact About Me I've traveled around Indiana by wheelchair...41 days, 1000 miles. Alone. :)
My Philosophy Touch Can be a Loving Experience and One Person Can Make a Difference in the World.
What Gives Me Hope Friendship, healthy touch, children, laughter, every day that I'm alive against the odds.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Create a Department of Peace
What/who changed my life and why The Tenderness Tour as an event...because it showed me that there were many good people in the world. The fact that I could wheel around Indiana and never lack for food, shelter or assistance was amazing.

My new book "The Hallelujah Life" is also having a powerful impact!
