I’m an Anabaptist writer and poet. I grew up enjoying to read the classics, and was captivated by the idea of writing in their tradition. To be classic in this sense is to be deeply human, and to be human in its fullest sense is to be made in the image of God.

I write because there are so many facets of humanity to be explored, and I want to reveal and characterize the deepest spark that makes us who we are. To trace the image of the supreme Creator and Lover and of his eternal Son is my highest goal.

I’m finishing up my senior year at the University of Maryland, where I studied English and philosophy. When I graduate, I plan to continue working with the Curator, an Anabaptist literary publication, and to dedicate time to writing fiction and essays.

I work as Administrative Assistant for Shenandoah Christian Music Camp, managing editor of the Curator, prose editor of the Leaf, and (very amateur) composer and director for the Diligam Ensemble.

Other things I love and might write about on this blog are music and theology.
