I’m a husband, a father, a believer, a tinkerer, a computer scientist, an artist, and a thinker. I grew up in a patch town in south-western Pennsylvania, surrounded by good people and raised by a single father. My grandma taught me about Jesus, and I put my faith in Jesus at fifteen. After joining the military, I married the love of my life, and now we raise two beautiful children together. Often I was the only conservative voice in the crowd, through high school, a military career, and college. Some say I have a penchant for controversy, and I am and probably always will be a contrarian at heart. But in reality, it is a desire for deeper conversation that pushes me to ask questions of myself and others.
