About Me

My name is Garry (Ambrose) Andreano. I’m an Orthodox Christian who likes to write out my thoughts and speculations, because it helps me think. My MBTI is INTJ, and I’m a 5 on the Enneagram. I write about theology, poetry, politics and other things. I think like a philosopher and I play piano by ear. I also enjoy photography and image editing.

I have a wife and a daughter, I live in PA, and I enjoy the great indoors.

I named this blog Ambrosiaster for two reasons:

  1. Ambrosiaster is a name given to an unknown author of works formerly attributed to Ambrose of Milan. Or as I like to think of it, there is someone trying to pretend that he is Ambrose of Milan.  A wannabe, so to speak.
  2. Ambrosiaster is kind of like blending the words Ambrose and Disaster, which describes me and my writings quite well.
