  • Interests: Hanging out with my family, fishing, reading, writing, illustrating, designing, and drinking absurd amounts of coffee
  • Why I'm at Cedarville: My family and I chose to move to Cedarville from Southern Seminary because of a growing desire to do apologetics training in a Christian liberal arts setting.
