Introduction

It's been years since I've kept a blog—over a decade. But it's been almost two years now since I made the switch to broadcast, and while I enjoy what I do now, I've realized that I miss writing. It's time to create this sort of outlet again. I'll start by introducing myself. Going forward, you'll also find this information in the "who am I" page.

I'm a writer and journalist with 15 years' experience in media and public policy. As you may read in the "walk" page, I spent a year in my early 30s traveling across the USA to explore the question of what it means to be an American. What started as a professional project soon became a personal journey, and it was during that time that I found faith and became a Christian. My home and identity, since then, have been in Christ. Serving Him and His church is now the primary focus of my life. As a gay man, I'm also dedicated to building bridges and bringing better understanding between the LGBT and Christian communities.

I was raised in Central America and have spent most of my adult life on the East Coast, first in Washington, DC, and later in New York City. I now live in Los Angeles. I have seen much of this country, and fell in love with many parts of it, but at heart I think I'll always be a New Yorker, no matter where I live.
