I was born and raised in southern California to a good, irreverent Mormon family; a natural introvert and the youngest of five boys. Between 2007 and 2009 I served as a missionary in Sendai Japan, where I learned to love lived religion, serving one’s fellowman, and all things Japanese. Upon my return, I chose practicality over passion and graduated from BYU in 2013 with a BA in Business Management. Now a card-carrying Utah transplant, I live with my wife and two children in Utah Valley.

Religion, particularly Mormonism, occupies the heart of my thought, with the humanities—literature, philosophy, history—as neighboring interests. Primary influences include Lowell Bennion, Eugene England, and Shusaku Endo.

「故郷へ」roughly translates to “Toward Home.” A personal watchword, the phrase encompasses my quest to reorient myself toward home—toward my truest, best self that I am prone to wander from.
