The eldest of four equally opinionated, outspoken children, I was born to a Father from Texas and a Mother from Barcelona. I grew up in a small town in southern Pennsylvania, and attended Catholic schools there. I went on to earn my undergraduate degree at Georgetown, my JD at Notre Dame, and my Masters at Sotheby’s in London. Since 2002 I have lived and worked in Washington, DC.
My writing is fairly broad in scope, covering everything from art and architecture to Catholicism and popular culture. I am frequently acerbic, particularly when it comes to relativism, but I often try to find the good in what might otherwise appear to be a complete mess. Above all, I hope to encourage people of good will to take heart, and keep learning, so as to better themselves and better the world around them.
