Chronic wanderer, lover of all things melancholic and whimsical. I'm the co-founder and editor-in-chief for YOB, and I'm the host of our podcast, the YOBcast. In another life, I go by Thomas Mark Zuniga, author of STRUGGLE CENTRAL, a collection of my messy memoirs. In another another life, I went by "Two Beckonings" on the long lost blogging platform, Xanga, where I first fleshed out my story of faith and same-sex attraction. I'm an INFJ/INFP depending on the day and an Enneagram Type 4 all the day long -- basically, I like to be alone and cry and long for what I cannot have. I've lived in Pennsylvania, Georgia, California, and North Carolina, working with youth in tutoring, camps, wilderness therapy, and currently a therapeutic boarding school. My favorite thing in life is the crossroads where struggle meets redemption; reaching this crossroads in community is even better. That's why I'm so glad YOB exists.
