Nathan was homeschooled through high school, attended Franciscan University of Steubenville, entered the Jesuits in 2003, and will be ordained a priest on June 14, 2014. His hero is Fr. Richard M. Thomas, a Jesuit who spent his life on the border of El Paso and Juarez, Mexico, fighting abortion and serving the poor. Nathan is sad about Liverpool's epic collapse, doleful about Barcelona's troubles, but very excited about Team USA's prospects in the World Cup. He spends his free time reading novels, smoking cigars, and drinking whatever whisk(e)y best suits the environment.
