My self-summary
I have a deep confidence that God will work through everything and make everything well. I'm living my life out of that conviction.

I love --- everything. Books, friends, family, imagination games; blue sky, tall trees, sonorous rain that pours through a windstorm. Texmex, Indian food, proteins and veggies. (Did you know chick fil a found a way to make KALE taste GOOD? Impossible, right?) Board games, sports, video games --- long nights watching movies, cuddling, talking and holding each other.

I also adore my work. I study philosophy, doing research in a field called metaphysics. It is glorious and exhausting, every day involves uncovering one more star in the heavenly pattern of necessary reality, and it fills me with a fire to teach my students.
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 job.

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. Lifting weights and high-intensity interval training. Playing every sport --- with only slight skill but lots of enthusiasm. 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

A goofy, random sense of humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Characters in heroic tales. My future wife.
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.

Buuut if I did spend a Friday night in real time, it'd most likely be chilling with friends. Just talking, praying, walking, maybe going out and playing basketball or watching Last Ship.

It's Thursday when I go out dancing!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm committed to waiting till marriage to have sex.
