on a personal note
It feels funny to have a website touting things I've done.. One one hand I love to share my work with others. On the other hand, I want to press back on the achievement-oriented culture we live in. I don't believe my accomplishments give me dignity, though I understand society uses them to establish credibility. My family and best friends could care less about my resumé, and they love me with all my faults. This grace centers me, and it's a reflection of a divine love that grounds human dignity in a source distinct from anything we do. This love also calls to me to defend the dignity of others, which I strive to do through my teaching and my writing.
