Me with Dad and Mom

I’m the eldest of four children – yes, that’s me at my First Christmas with Dad and Mom – born to a father from Texas and a mother from Barcelona.  I grew up in a small town in southern Pennsylvania, and attended the local Catholic schools.  I went on to earn my undergraduate degree at Georgetown, my J.D. at Notre Dame, and my Master’s at Sotheby’s in London.  Since 2002 I have lived and worked in Washington, DC.

While I most often write about subjects related to or touching upon Catholicism, I also have interests in a wide range of cultural matters, from the arts and architecture, to pop songs and superheroes. I may be pedantic, but I don’t think you’ll ever find me boring. Thanks for your visit and enjoy having a look around!
