Growing up in Fayetteville, North Carolina, I enjoyed being outside, playing with blocks, building with scraps of wood, asking riddles, and doing all sorts of things that required the use of my mind and hands. My seven siblings and I were never bored, always inventing some new pastime or game.

Some topics that interest me include ecology, ethnobiology, ornithology, leadership, philosophy, psychology, linguistics, curiosity, physics, creative writing, time travel, education, and logic.
Belief in God
I am steadfast believer in God. I believe that Jesus was a real person, that he was both God and human, that he sacrificed himself for us, and that he rose to life again. I believe that no one can know God except through the Jesus. I believe that Jesus' death reconciles us to God out of grace, that no effort is required on our part. Out of reverence for this act of mercy and love for God, I strive to live a life that is set aside for God, a life filled with selfless love in every way. It is my goal that each day I understand more of God's grace and love for me and that I will do all that he might be glorified.
