Hi. :) I'm an atheist, activist, blogger, and all-around goofball.
I used to be a campus organizer and high school specialist with the Secular Student Alliance as well as a contributing author to Atheism Resource. I now blog about religion for a living at my blog on the Patheos network.
I was the co-founder of the Skepticon
annual conference and from 2008-2010 I worked as the organizing team
leader for Skepticon 1, 2, and 3.
Outside of my work as an activist, I am a veteran of the
Springfield Regional Opera’s Young Artist Program. I am a karaoke-loving baritone with a handful of professional roles to my credit with various companies, including work under the directorship of two-time Grammy-winner James Billings.
My other interests include playing cards, performing magic, and physical fitness.
