This site is the hub for my writing life.
If you saw the questions in a curious mind spread out before you like pocket change, what might you see? Inquiry: How can I shift my perspective to understand this issue better? Synthesis: If I bridge these two concepts, what new thing might I learn about the world? Perhaps the occasional reverie: I hear the story of what someone was like at 50, but I wonder what they were doing at 30? Or 13?
Every day I’m asking questions and so are you.
Our questions not only help us understand the exquisite cosmos around us, but they draw into the open fragments of the stories that we’re always telling ourselves. Stories of our aspirations and our fears, our identities and our relationships. These narratives, and the ponderings that bring them forth, make up the fabric of our inner lives.
Asking questions and telling stories, it was what I was doing long before I thought of myself as a writer. But now it seems I have found a vocation where I can do both and seek to do them well. If you leave here more hungry to know the world around you, to know yourself, perhaps even to know God then I’ve done my work.

This site is the hub for all of my main works. On Instagram, however, I post shorter writings - micro essays. Follow me there for the “snack” form of what I do here.
