Hey, I'm Scott. I used to think I was a fraud and failure and I'd always be that way. But, I've learned I'm really a beloved son of God and that I am crowned with glory and honor. It's taken years and a lot of hard work to be able to write and say these words with confidence and a joyful assurance.


Since 2014, I've been on a journey to discovering my best self as a man living a life of sexual, emotional and relational well-being and maturity. Prior to starting this journey, I was defeated, ashamed, isolated, kept a lot of secrets and resigned to living with my impulsive and seemingly uncontrollable sexual thoughts and behavior rest of my life. I'd tried every typical "Christian" solution and nothing ever worked.

Every day, like you and every other man following Jesus,  I am engaged in a fight. I don't have it all figured out. I've had some victories and I've had my share of losses and heartache.  I learned that in all my struggles, God is working them for my good, that I'm deeply flawed but even more deeply loved and that I could heal from the wounds and mistakes of my past and didn't have to stay locked in a pattern of feeling bad > acting out to feel good > feeling shame, self-loathing and regret > and repeating this cycle over and over. 

If you're living in isolation, keeping secrets and struggling with unwanted sexual compulsions, I want to invite you to come on a journey with us to sexcess. It starts by coming to see God as a good, kind and compassionate Father who, on our way back from the whorehouse having blown our entire inheritance on hookers in a matter of months, runs to us and greets us...not with shame or stones or scorn...but with hugs and kisses; a robe to cover our nakedness; a ring for our fingers and a feast! 


I invite you to discover that repentance is really about returning to the party God wants to throw for filled with more joy and delight and pleasure than this dying world could ever offer. 

I am a certified life coach and addiction recovery coach. I have developed my own trauma-informed and post-traumatic growth sexual addiction recovery program.  I am also a certified Unwanted Guide, leading men through Jay Stringer's Unwanted+The Journey course. Along with Chris Inman, I'm the
 co-creator of the We Got Balls podcast, exploring masculine sexual attraction, arousal, trauma and addiction recovery as we model real, raw masculine conversations.

I'm man on a journey. Married to Brooke, a high school math teacher, who has traveled with me for over 24 years. Together we guide three adult children. I live in Mobile, AL, but my heart is in the Appalachian Mountains (this is where I find rest, hike and recharge via the sound of running water). I loves spending time with my recovery community, walking in my own recovery for more than a decade. 

In terms of my vision, I am passionate about masculine initiation. Through the Man-Maker Initiative (, I create experiences for men to step into powerful masculinity. Along with Scott Cone, I'm the co-creator of the We Got Balls podcast. I also facilitate many men’s story work weekends and intensives. 

I'm an Certified Professional Recovery Coach (CPRC), a Pastoral Sex Addiction Professional (PSAP) and a certified Unwanted Guide.

I spent 15 years in vocational ministry as youth pastor. I currently serve as a Local Elder at the People of Mars Hill in Mobile, AL. I'm an active member and contributor to other men's recovery organizations throughout the USA.
