Welcome to my personal notepad. This blog is where I process concepts, test out theories, and take creative ideas out for a test drive. Right now it’s a bit of “junk drawer” of content. I typically gravitate toward musings on theology, philosophy, apologetics, and worldviews. But I also touch on other topics as I feel inspired, including music, poetry and (to a decreasing degree) politics.
As for me, I’m a bit of a paradox. A rule-following contrarian, an artistic logician, a peace-loving firearms enthusiast, a book-loving rock guitarist. I’ve played lead guitar with a classic rock singer or two you may have heard of. I also compose and arrange orchestral music and perform with the Nashville Praise Symphony. I’m currently writing a novel and a non-fiction book on philosophy and I play now and again in an original band with my wife. I’m also a member of the worship band at my home church and am very involved in an incredible ministry called Celebrate Recovery where I am part of the worship band an occasionally teach.
I hail from the Nashville, TN area (by way of Minneapolis, MN) where I live with my wife of 27 years. I have two spectacular daughters. I am an American by birth, and a “mutt” by race. (Seriously. You should see the results of my DNA test!) I love traveling, learning about other cultures, and learning other languages. I study world religions and am a philosopher, writer, artist, designer, musician, theologian, and Christian apologist.
But most astounding of all to me, I am loved by God.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important command.” —Matthew 22:37-38
