A cradle-Catholic passionate about how Faith, history, and science meet in today’s world. Born in New Zealand, studied in Fiji and France, raised in Australia, and now living in the USA.
My conversion moment in 2012 launched a personal pilgrimage to rediscover my Faith. I wanted to love and understand Catholicism in the 'space age'. But I also begin to realize how much of that must be done in a state of hope. Not resignation. Not revolution. But renewal.
I am riveted by the Catholic frontier between faith, science, and history. I converted from radical traditionalism by a strange route – through archaeology. That led me to quantum physics, psychoanalysis and mythology, evolution and angels, and our Holy Father Pope Francis.
I believe it’s important to read widely, from all sides, and to celebrate the good, true, and beautiful wherever it is found. Because that's just smart.

Marriage as a Sacramental Path
No one is ever prepared for how deeply the sacrament of marriage changes our lives. Sacraments are like invisible engines that break us apart and build us up - and that's never a tame process. It's about more than learning 'unconditional love' to wife and children. It's about entering the mystical way of love, with all its beauty, challenges, and blessedness. This sacrament will mold you into the presence of Christ, bring you into focus, and help you discover your unique gift to creation.
Creativity & Homeschooling Parents often don't have a plan for creative writing for their children and students. Dominic believes that it's not an extra activity, but should be as central as math and physical activity. Children and teens who can sort and share their inner lives prove to be more successful everywhere - in business, friendships, and more. He invites parents and teens to consider the impact of encouraging and observing creativity.
