Profile Information

Relationship Status (single, partner, etc):
My Story:
I was a fifth-generation Mormon, served as a missionary to Brazil, was charged with "apostasy" (defined as "denial of the Holy Ghost"), and excomunicated (in my absence) many years ago. (I requested the excommunication; it took them a while to act--they wanted evidence.) I have been a lawyer and served as the head of communication to the field-force at MetLife but am now a writer of satirical fiction.
Interests and Hobbies:
I write, sing in two choirs, cook, play piano, paint, decorate--you name it. For the past 26 years, I have cooked at St. Joseph's Soup Kitchen in Greenwich Village, NYC--my second-most-favorite commitment of all time (the first being my partner).
Favorite Books:
I read constantly but Magic Mountain (T. Mann) is probably my favorite of all time. The most recent kick-in-the-pants book I read was "The Letters of Noel Coward" edited by Barry Day. I highly recommend it.
Favorite Movies:
I go to the opera more than the movies. This season, revivals of "Salome," "Madama Butterfly," and "Lucia di Lammermoor" at the Met were standouts.
Favorite activity after mormonism?
I like hanging out at friendly bars and have had a blast turning some of my past experiences into satire. I've created an alter ego--Robert Wayne Thompson--who is trying to show the world the one way to truth! It's his website that's listed below.

Hello David,


I also love The Magic Mountain. It's my constant companion. :-) I hope that you have a chance to read Thomas's many other amazing works.

Thanks for the friend add David and the kind words. My father is a lawyer and TBM (true believing mormon) along with the rest of my family. I created this site after attending the exmo conference last year as I felt driven to do more to help recovering and shunned exmormons to find a new community. Thanks again for joining. I like your blog!
