I’m married to a beautiful woman, Rachel. Without her, I wouldn’t have accomplished much of anything that you read on this blog. Rachel and I live in Chicago with our dog Kaira and our expecting a daughter in November. For work, I serve as a developer evangelist for Twilio.
I believe there was a man born two thousand years ago who we now call Jesus. I believe he was the son of God and that God “did not send his son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”
In The Stand, Stephen King says:
God the Creator had made man into His own image, and that meant that every man and woman who dwelt under God’s light was a creator of some kind, a person with an urge to stretch out his hand and shape the world into some rational pattern.
I feel most alive when emulating my creator — when I’m creating new works through writing, coding, or cooking, and when I’m building relationships by sharing the love and grace that’s been so undeservedly given to me.
