Who is this guy?

That's an easy one to answer: I'm a theologian who uses Unix. I finished the preseminary track at Northwestern College in Watertown, Wisconsin in 1991. In 1995 I graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, Wisconsin, with an MDiv, and was ordained as pastor in the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). From 1995-1998 I served congregations in Boyd, Dawson and Cambridge, Minnesota.

Several years ago, a ham friend gave me Linux. I've been using and advocating Unix ever since. These days I am working in the field of computers and supporting my family by working with Unix. After seeing very little information about Unix aimed at theologians, I decided to start assembling whatever I could find to help promote its use. Here it is!

In case you're interested, this site has been produced with the vi editor under (at various times) Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris. I may even have done some of this on Windows 95 using gvim. My editor of choice across all platforms is elvis. I recommend it highly.

Still reading? Hmmm. I guess you could take a look at my resume, or else read some of my theological writings.
