Peter Epps

I grew up in a small town in Northern Illinois, and have gone to college in South Carolina, Southern California, and Texas, and worked and lived in the Netherlands (3 months) and Japan (3 years). I hope I'll never get tired of people, cities, and whatever God has next for me--but I'm an Apocalypse junkie, too. I finished my PhD at Baylor in 2009, and have been teaching in Houston since then.
