Ben Varnum grew up outside of Kansas City, Kansas with his parents, two younger brothers, and a number of much-beloved pets. He spent most of the first decade of the new millenium at school at the University of Chicago, appreciating the exposure to new ideas and great books. It left him convinced that considered thinking and academic writing can have significant consequences for daily life. He currently serves as a priest in the Episcopal Church in the Greater Omaha area, and lives with his wife, Megan, who often accompanies him to movies and usually catches things he doesn’t!
