WHAT I DO
The most successful people I know have “somebody.” Someone who knows them. Someone who shoots straight, always pushes forward, won't take any crap and encourages healthy change.
I’ve been that “somebody” for years. I am a certified Spiritual Director, mentor and pastor. I have a unique gift to open people up, helping them quickly see what is and what isn't. I move people to higher levels of awareness for the best possible growth, personally, professionally and spiritually.
WHO I HELP
You are wanting healthy relationships, satisfying career, peace within your faith or simply someone to listen.
You are building a "people first" company culture. You want to hire rock stars, keep rock stars and grow leaders while increasing the bottom line.
You are needing someone safe who can listen, understands spiritual transformation while navigating the pressures and processes of faith-based environments.
HOW I HELP
I don't fix, I listen and discern with you the best, healthiest way to move forward. I see people one-on-one or in groups. I can work with you face to face in Southern California or a host of digital options outside the area. Hit the link below and we can set up a time to talk.
Work With J.R.
I spent 30 years in the television and new media business, half of that time spent running or building newsrooms from New York to California. I've managed and hired hundreds of people as an Executive Producer and News Director. Along the way I developed a national reputation as an award-winning storyteller. I’ve worked for Time Warner, Gannett Television, McGraw-Hill, E. W. Scripps Company, Tribune Broadcasting Company and multiple private agencies.
In the early 2000’s I was one of the chief architects of XXXchurch.com, a ministry geared to the porn industry. I helped lead the movement to raise awareness about pornography and help those involved in the industry. I was Executive Director, pastor and speaker. I oversaw all national and international XXXchurch projects from marketing to outreaches.
I speak across the country on a wide range of subjects. From the state of TV news to personal transformation. I wrote a book in 2007 called Starving Jesus. You can find it on Amazon.
In 2017 I founded TableTop Ministries, a non-profit that provides spiritual direction and pastoral care for those who can not afford traditional therapies.
I love mid-century design, chocolate, peeps at Easter, old cars and reading anything by Brennan Manning. I am married 24 years to my best friend Diane, or as she is known, Saint Di. We spend our time raising three adopted children; Mia, Angel and Zian. We make our home in Southern California.
