My self-summary
My heart is with God and my brain is on a dozen varieties of things. I adore a balance of intellectual and athletic life and can have fun in nearly any game (sport, boardgame, video game, you name it!).

I'm an old soul who's always getting accused of being as playful as a child. I like the combination. Reading Dr. Seuss while thinking metaphysics will do that to ya!

I love color, whimsy, and imagination. I thrive when I have a puzzle or a game on my mind to scheme my way through. Besides that, there's nothing better than spending quiet hours with dear long friends.

I'm still writing now, but here's a poem from long ago when I was a tiny tot:

The Rabbit and The Dane

With lively step and lithy leap
The rabbit raced upon the steep
Unyielding hill, which higher rose
And gave the rabbit no repose.

Beyond him loped the growling dane
(They call him there, The Rabbit's Bane)
Who bared his teeth and chased his foe
Up from the fertile plain below.

The hill afforded cave nor hole
And -- as the running took its toll --
The rabbit wished he could not see
The dane approach so rapidly.

The rabbit failed to keep the lead!
And stumbled, in a path of weed.
But when the canine reached the bed,
He let the rabbit run ahead.

This dane and rabbit often meet
And -- not for life and not for meat --
Begin anew their fearful play
To see who's more in shape that day.
What I’m doing with my life
Grad student at UT Austin. Started college at fourteen, finished a Master's degree in theology from Duke. Right now I'm finishing my doctorate in philosophy (hopefully this summer!). Teaching is both a delight and my current job while I finish my coursework.

A major life goal of mine is to be a father and a writer. Research, fiction, adult and children's books --- C S Lewis inspired me and I've never given up the hope of following in his footsteps.
I’m really good at
teaching and passionately explaining. Building Christian community. Ultimate frisbee, RPG's, listening, compassion, storytelling. Entertaining kids. Writing. Being goofy and random. Climbing things.
The first things people usually notice about me
My good Southern manners. I say "sir" and "ma'am" to my elders and I open doors for ladies.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
The touch of sunlight
The sound of rain
Silliness and spoof
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Characters in heroic tales. My future wife. The truths of metaphysics.
On a typical Friday night I am
one day older than I was the night before. This does not apply to weeks when I skip Thursday by time travel.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm committed to waiting till marriage to have sex.
You should message me if
You have a strong heart, an active mind, and commitment to God.
