I play ukulele, bass, and guitar. I like to write poetry and songs. Reading is my favorite activity -- usually while drinking coffee. And I am an amateur ornithologist.
I have two boys, William and Charlie, and a girl, Elsie Grace. My wife is the Director of Mission Integration at Via Christi Hospital and getting her master's in theology. My mom is an iconographer, and my Dad was a Melkite Catholic deacon.
I have previously taught courses in World Literature I and II, Art of Poetry, Art of Creative Non-fiction, and Rhetoric and Argument.
