Father Augustine is a published writer, surfer, teacher, coach, professional juggler, gardener, rugby player, archeologist, rosary maker, icon painter, carnivorous plant botanist.  He has worked at every job imaginable from archaeologist to beach lifeguard to street performer.

His wit and youthfulness are perhaps his most evident qualities, but those who know him well would surely add that he is passionate about Catholic orthodoxy, literature, and his writing.

After graduating from Rice University, Father Augustine went on to work on archaeological digs in Italy and Greece. A year studying ancient languages at the University of Pennsylvania led him to the University of Missouri, where he intended to pursue a PhD in Classics. Instead, he found a call to become a monk. He took solemn vows on January 1, 2000 and was ordained a priest on September 27, 2003.
