I’m a guy with a curious mind and a short attention span.
I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia (well, like most people who say that, I was actually raised in the suburbs). I went to college at Furman University in Greenville, SC, where I met my wife and spent a lot of time throwing a frisbee.
After that I got married and moved to Louisville, KY, where I spent an inordinately long period of time in grad school at Southern Seminary. After getting my MDiv, I did PhD work in Christian apologetics and worldview, with a healthy dose of theology and world religions mixed in.
That was intellectually engaging, but a mixture of burnout, major life events, and prayer brought me to the conclusion that a life in academia wasn’t for me. So I cashed in my PhD work for a ThM and returned to Greenville to start over. After a stint as a copyeditor, I’ve spent the last several years working in the family business (an insurance agency). But at heart I’m still a writer and teacher.
We have two sons who love soccer and a daughter who loves monkeys. I love soccer and monkeys too. Who doesn’t? We are active members of Fellowship Greenville.
