If I had to sum it up, I love to work with ideas.  I want to understand the human experience, grapple with how this world works and what's in it.  To that end, I completed seminary training at Biola University and hold a Ph.D. in philosophy from Loyola University Chicago.  I taught philosophy for a few years and now serve in my local church in vocational ministry.

I enjoy two things perhaps more than anything else: playing games and having long talks/storytelling with friends.  I'd like to think OTT fits into the second one, and I wholeheartedly invite you to join in the fun.

I moved across the world from my homeland of Australia to the United States when I was 18. Originally, I came to pursue missionary work through Youth With A Mission, but after that stint I stuck around for the girl. Melissa and I got married and I found myself with an opportunity to serve in vocational ministry.

I am deeply curious about the universe, God and especially the phenomenon of consciousness and what it means to be human. I approach theology and religious inquiry through this lens; if it doesn't increase my capacity for love of God, life, self and other, I am probably not very interested in it.


In my free time I love to write, record and produce music, play games, and take long walks in the woods with my wife and dog. I hope our conversations in OTT are helpful in someway to you on your journey and we'd love to hear from you!
