Stack Exchange employs me as a Community Manager. I've been known to respond to jericson@stackexchange.com. Alternatively, I maintain an office on chat. (Please ignore the meta cruft.)

You can read about what I've done over the years in my curriculum vitae.

On a personal note, I'm married and have three children. Our oldest son loves school, friends, games, and reading. (He can't wait to get on our LEGO® Answers site, but he's not quite old enough. My posts there are usually at his request.) Two of my children happen to have been born on the same day. I sometimes write about that experience.

Don't have time for a full review of something? Why not try my 5-second reviews?

Occasionally, I write a post for Eschewmenical.

comment Does the Bible support the concept of male spiritual headship?
Comments aren't the right format to discuss justice in the book of Joshua. But my point is that Rahab was the "spiritual head" of her family if you are using "saving" her family as a yardstick. The story of Achen seems a red herring to me. I don't see how this question is at all productive.

@Wikis: I filled out the "Abstract" a bit to see if I could answer your question. (Thanks again for keeping me on target. ;-)

Added a bit to the abstract to answer the actual question.

comment Are tongues a sign for believers or unbelievers?
@Wikis: Probably not. It was intended to answer another question that was marked as a duplicate of this one. (I think it's not an exact duplicate as I commented there.)

comment Are there any atheists in the Bible?
@Wikis: Well, you are by far the best judge of that. Consider this a supplement to dleyva3's answer. (And my answer on BH is really a supplement to Frank Luke and Kazark's excellent answers.) I'm not sure I would upvote either answer myself. ;-)

comment What is the “abomination of desolation”?
You might consider asking over on Biblical Hermeneutics. Clearly Matthew expected that his readers would understand and if the gospel was written after 70 AD, the simplest answer is he refers to the Roman legionary standards set up in the Temple.

comment What does “gates of hell” mean in Matthew 16:18?
The final paragraph is particularly important. Jesus assaulted Hell and break its metaphorical gates. In my mind, the church is like the army standing before the Gates of Mordor. It seems impossible to rescue anyone that way, but because of Jesus victory, their is nothing to keep people trapped in Hades.

comment Has the notion of “legitimacy” been abandoned in the Catholic Church?
From a purely cultural perspective, I don't think there is any negative consequence to being "illegitimate" these days unless you are hoping to acquire an inherited title. I pray your friend will be able to put aside her fears on this one point and focus on the other issues surrounding a breaking marriage.

revised Why do some traditions recite the Lord's Prayer word for word?
Quotation (>) looks a bit better than code indentation on this site. I also changed some phrasing and punctuation to make your answer a touch more clear. Feel free to re-edit if I screwed anything up.
