About Me

I live in West Michigan with my lovely wife, Becca, an eight-year-old rapscallion named Jack, and a four-year-old, Oliver, who is turning out to be quite a scoundrel, too. We have a modest, comfortable house in a friendly neighborhood just a mile from the local college (private, Christian, liberal arts) where I manage web content. I bike to work when the weather allows, and I try to spend as much time as possible with my family — playing, eating, going on adventures and the like.

I write when I can find the time; I’ve written some for Story Warren, and the Rabbit Room once indulged me by publishing one of my poems (a high-water mark, that). Also for The Gospel Coalition, and elsewhere.

I read whether I’ve found time or no — fiction, mostly, but also theology, history/biography and other nonfictions that grab my attention.

I’m a drinker of ales, a smoker of tobaccos, and an occasional gentleman. I love fall and winter more than summer and spring (although I don’t mind those either). I like a good story, a warm house, honest food, and conversation with friends.
