"Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering."
-Saint Agustine

I was born in Silver Spring Maryland and grew up in the Washington DC metropolitan area. I graduated from Burman University with an undergraduate degree in Religious Studies & Biblical languages and Andrews University with a Master in Divinity.


My interests are in cultural studies,  philosophy, mythology, history, spiritual disciplines, and weightlifting. I am a lifelong student of the WAY, husband, father, pastor, and amateur writer and scholar. I live in Vancouver, WA with my amazing wife Chelsea, our son Ismael, and our dog Nimbus.
