mcleod-gotic-4 copyTimothy Reeves McLeod II is an aspirant in the diocese of North Carolina and the son of an Episcopal priest. He and his wife live in Durham, NC where he is working towards an M.Div. She works full time as a graphic designer to support his theology habit. When Timothy’s not busy reading pretentious theology, he’s reading pretentious literature. But really, he wants to be a priest, so that he can get paid to do theology, and that sounds like as good a gig as there is.
