I’ve been accused of being an extrovert, but I definitely recharge when I’m alone. I’m an INFP on the Myers Briggs scale.
Growing up in suburban DFW isn’t as romantic and exciting as Boston, Brooklyn, or Philadelphia. So be it. I grew up in Bedford, Texas, a small town between Dallas and Fort Worth. At the age of 18, I had a supernatural encounter that led me to Jesus. I gave my heart and life to the Lord, and began thinking, feeling, and living differently. Shortly after, I began a nine month church-based School of Discipleship shortly after to establish a biblical foundation in my life.
After a two year hiatus post high school, I attended two local community colleges before transferring to Dallas Baptist University to major in English. While at DBU, I was a member of the Pew Honor Society and was President of the local Sigma Tau Delta Honor Society my senior year. I also spent Fall of 2001 abroad studying literature, art, and philosophy in Copenhagen, Denmark, before graduating with an BA in English from DBU.
I am a writer at heart. I discovered blogging shortly after college. I have owned more blogs than I care to admit. Web marketing took me on a lengthy sabbatical from writing, and I long to return to writing for writing’s sake in the near future. In the meantime, I’ve purchased land in Middle Tennessee where our family has begun practicing some permaculture homesteading principles as we prepare to produce our own food.
Other Places I Contribute
Years ago I launched a few dozen websites and sold a few along the way. There are only one or two places I can be found online these days…

You can also find my research on the art of becoming a useful person at UsefulHumans.net.
My wife writes for Mommypotamus.com. It’s a blog about real traditional foods, natural remedies, and detailed research on a variety of health, wellness, pregnancy, and baby related topics. I wrote a few times there years ago, but I’m mostly involved behind the scenes now.
I am drawn to people who are:
- Aware of their unique giftings and purpose
- Focused and highly skilled in those gifts
- Passionate about what they do
- Excellent communicators
