About me

Gender MALE

Occupation ESL teacher, editor/writer
Location Jacksonville, Florida, United States
Introduction I am a husband with two children, an oxymoron--a committed Christian--and a scattered, muttering Catholic writer. I earned my keep nearly a decade in Taiwan stuffing the duck. I founded a new Catholic cultural review, inFORM, but it's stuck in the mud for now. I plan to do grad work at the interface of the history of science, medieval & classical thought, and cognitive science.
