Born & raised in central Indiana, I am a quasi-third culture kid in the sense that I was exposed to two distinct cultures growing up. I like to say that I’m half Thai, half Tennessee. Though I didn’t spend any significant time outside the US growing up, I was exposed to some of the cultural norms of southeast Asian culture. My wife playfully says that I skipped my childhood and went straight into adulthood. Maybe so. But that’s who I am.
I’m happily married and a father of two young ones. Surrounded by good friends and a loving family — and saved by grace — I live a life that is better than I deserve.
