Perhaps someone who knows me better might be suited to do the bio, but here it goes. Oftentimes I am struck with a skewed view of the world in which we live. Something, to quote Morpheus, is a "splinter in your mind" that I cannot shake. I feel a sense of creation and our Creator, but I also have a sense of the abject beauty in humanity that rarely is allowed to be seen. Everyday, I feel we lose a little more humanity and a lot of divinity... but what we pick up in place of it doesn't sit well with me. I'm a creative soul, a decidedly contrary person, and someone who feels like he's lived a lot so that others don't have to do so. But, all of my life, I have learned to live a temporary existence. I never expected to live past 23, so being over 40 is a bit hard to take. So, I'm learning how to be something more than temporary, something less than myself.
