Thanks for stopping by. I’m Fr. Dn. Thom Crowe. I enjoy writing and sharing info on Orthodoxy. You can check out some of my writing at the Live Orthodoxy blog. My Master’s thesis was a based in comparative religious studies, something I enjoy talking about along with Church history and liturgics. When not parenting, at church, I like to tinker with developing and building things.

If you’d like to work with me on a project or have me come speak, feel free to email me

A little about me, I’m a Deacon in the Holy Orthodox Church and work with the teens at my parish, marketing guy, dad to a sweet little girl, husband to a great wife who I help with her line of housewares and fine art at weather&noise, run the Made Shop. I’m an avid reader, beer aficionado, lover of theology and history, aspiring coffee snob. I live in Tulsa with the most amazing wife, a perfect daughter and our two dogs, Tucker and Buddy.
