About

DSC00395b

I’m a writer, speaker, and attorney living in Saint Paul, Minnesota. I write pretty much everything: fiction, poetry, essays, academic works, and music. When I’m not writing, I enjoy hosting dinner parties, book clubs, and creative writing workshops out of my home.

I graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a B.A. in Philosophy, and from the University of St. Thomas with a J.D. and an M.A. in Catholic Studies.

I am the author of I Desired You: Intellectual Journals on Faith and (Homo)sexuality (Volumes I and II), which explores my understanding of what it means to be gay and Catholic. I am also a contributing author of Roadmap, which was published by the American Bar Association in 2015 and received the ABA’s E. Smythe Gambrell Award. My writing and speaking have focused primarily on faith, (homo)sexuality, Catholic Social Teaching, and education. My academic article, “A Catholic Perspective on Homoerotic Desire,” was published in Logos Journal in 2019.
