Hey there! I am an animation producer and an author and I help everyday Christians understand eschatology/Bible prophecy so they can live with hope, purpose, and clarity in an unstable world. I also help sincere seekers find answers to their questions about evidence for the Christian faith, also known as apologetics.
Along my journey to becoming a Christian, apologetics played a key role in my decision to follow Jesus. I also developed a passion for eschatology, or the study of the end-times. My passion for eschatology has led to a deeper walk with Christ and a burden for evangelism. I’ve seen this dynamic at work other students of prophecy and my goal is to reawaken believers to a sense of awe and wonder when it comes to scripture.
Eschatology and apologetics are at best intimidating and at worst completely foreign to many believers I talk to. I want to make both topics accessible for the everyday Christian.
When we view current events and what scripture says about the end times there is a convergence unlike any other time in history. If the Bible really is the word of God and the authoritative source of trustworthy prophecy then we can’t ignore what’s going on around us and how it lines up with scripture’s view of the end times.
Jesus and other New Testament writers also teach that, while we won’t know “the day or the hour” and should never set dates, we should be aware of the seasons and understand the “signs of the times” (Matthew 16:3), especially as we “see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:25)
I have an amazing wife and three great kids who make me better every day. They mean the world to me and remind me that my success is ultimately defined by how well they thrive. When Jesus comes back or when I get a few pounds of dirt thrown on my box, whichever comes first, I want my family to know they were more important to me than any earthly accolade, accomplishment, or pleasure.
Above all, I want to leverage my life for Christ and tell as many people as possible about His amazing gift of eternal life in heaven (John 3:16) and the abundantly full life he offers here on Earth (John 10:10). When you have the cure to everything, you tend to want to share it.
