I have a wide range of interests in various religious fields, especially regarding [[Orthodox Christianity]], [[Byzantine Chant]], [[:Category:Church History|Church History]], and [[:Category:Saints of the British Isles|saints of the British Isles]]. One of my major areas of research and interest is [[Orthodoxy in America]], and I like writing articles in that area about things that I wish other people had written articles about. I'm also keenly interested in comparative religion, linguistics, etymology, English literature, and ancient languages.
I was born in Newport News, Virginia, in 1975 and currently live in
Allentown, Pennsylvania, with my wife [[Khouria]] Nicole. Our first child, Evangelia, was born [[March 5]], 2007, and our second, Elias, was born [[December 6]], 2009.
I'm a Southerner by birth and at heart, though I do wish there were more proper bakeries south of the Mason-Dixon Line. That's possibly one of the major things Yankees have gotten right. (They tend to do autumn fairly splendidly, too, though the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia can give 'em all a run for their money.)
