C.A. stands for Cameron Alexis, but most people call me Alex. One could say I wear many hats, literally: I’m a writer, editor, journalist, and musician, among other things, and you’ll rarely find me without a hat on. But above all this, I’m God’s kid, always seeking an unreserved dependence on Christ.
Welcome to my website. I’m grateful you stopped by.
I first claimed this site in college as a portfolio of my written work. In the years since its founding, it has gradually manifested into my own digital world of reflection—a haven of sorts where I write about the goings-on of my mind and heart for anyone curious enough to read about them.
The essays I share here are primarily inspired by the interests and insights I’ve garnered throughout my time as a writer, freelance reporter, youth pastor, and perpetual student: I received a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism at the University of Houston in 2017 and a Master’s in Humanities and Social Thought at New York University in 2019. I am currently enrolled at Dallas Theological Seminary pursuing a Master’s of Theology.
An invaluable truth I’ve discovered in life is this: the world will tell each of us who we are if we don’t actively declare it ourselves. In contemplating Matthew 5:14, “…a city set on a hill cannot be hidden,” I now consider this online journal the line I cast out into the universe for anyone in need of encouragement in their own pursuits of courage, vulnerability, and a hope that ceaselessly reaches beyond the fallacies of fear.
I hope you’ll stick around for a while. Don’t forget to introduce yourself.
