An Arkansas native, I grew up camping in the Natural State and was the first member of my immediate family to go to college. I was fortunate to study in Tennessee, Washington, DC, Georgia in the US and internationally in Spain, France, and England. My wife and I married at the Cathedral of Christ the King in Atlanta GA and live near Saint Leo, FL. I volunteer with Pasco County as a volunteer fireman and play rhythm guitar for the faculty-student band. As part of a faculty that teaches the “sacred sciences” at Saint Leo, the Bishop of St. Petersburg has recognized me with a mandatum. My recent book, Ascetic Pneumatology, is published with Oxford University Press.
