On this page you will find a selected variety of papers I have written over the course of my seven years in university (as well as one or two from high-school). I love writing papers - the research, the formulating, and the occasional theology/worldview re-structuring. That of course is not to say I'm a brilliant author. Or that during school I wouldn't be writing these at the last minute. But I do enjoy it, and I hope you enjoy reading them at least a quarter as much as I enjoyed writing them.
I also hope they're at least a little informative and interesting.
