Minister and Writer

So, ok, my resume is a little odd:
I have a master's degree and a doctorate in religious studies. I've also studied at the University of Vienna and Oxford University.
I am a Unitarian Universalist minister and served congregations for over 20 years.
My writing experience includes work in the publications department of an arts organization (The Cleveland Orchestra), feature articles for a newspaper (The Cleveland City News), online text and audio classes (www.ontimetraining.com), and museum text (Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage).
I've written, produced, and narrated seventeen audio tours of interstate highway routes for the Museum of the Open Road. Each gives a commentary of the specific region you're driving through.
I'm author of two books on spirituality and contributor to a third. I've written the local history of Shaker Heights, Ohio. I've also written a book of stories about donuts.
My byline has appeared on over a hundred articles in publications including Newsday, the Washington Post\L.A. Times Syndicate, the Christian Century, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and the Akron Beacon Journal.
My background is unusual, but I know how to write clearly. After all, I've taken one of the world's more convoluted disciplines―theology―and made it accessible to people. See Hope, not Optimism or No Place to Stop on the Cross-Bronx Expressway, both from my book, Taking Pictures of God.
I know how to tell a story, such as, The Sunday School Teacher Who Got Us Screaming or The Man with Five Names, both from Museum of the Open Road audio scripts.
And I know how to listen which is, I believe, the first skill a writer must possess.
So if you would like to discuss a project, please be in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or call 301-920-1030. And, yes, I do deadlines, small jobs, travel, etc.
