Who are you?
There is a lot of value to be found in asking the right question. The right question can save your life if you find yourself trapped in a cave with a monster who is fond of riddles or it can bring you satori next to a pine tree atop the chilly heights of Mt. Fuji. I myself have always been a serious questioner. Asking questions is my life. Often enough you can find me in an empty park or in the corner of a room, pondering the both the deep and not so deep questions of life with a cup of oolong tea in hand. When Godzilla meets Space Godzilla, who wins?
Incidentally, tea helps the harder thoughts go down easier, as do other libations. I’m a ponderer, and I take that vocation very seriously. I am always seeking to ask harder questions of myself, and I try to surround myself with friends who are even more discerning and critical.
What do you do?
I recently graduated University of Tennessee Knoxville, where I majored in Latin and minored in Greek and Religious Studies. I played some music and wrote some songs while I was there too. For the next two years I will be at Harvard Divinity School pursuing a Masters of Theological Studies. My goal is to pursue a PhD in Early Christianity.
I drink coffee with Nikki Klein, my beautiful girlfriend, while she tries to convince me to do adventurous things like hiking, biking, and rock climbing. I always keep a kendama on hand. If I’m not playing kendama then I’m either translating or looking for German dubs of One Piece or Arrested Development so that I maintain my German.
