I want to introduce you to Nathaniel Schweinberg, a good friend of mine and my new intern this summer!
I met Nathaniel at Gurus last year. And throughout the year, as I was following him on Twitter, he just seemed to stick out. Overall, he just impressed me. Later on in the year, he asked if I had any internship positions open. I normally don’t, but I wanted to make the exception for him. So this summer, Nathaniel is working with me and helping GI/worshipVJ out in a lot of areas. I’ve also asked Nathaniel to contribute a few guest posts to this blog, so be sure to look for those throughout the coming months!
Here’s s a little more about @nathanielks:
Nathaniel is a young creative who recently graduated from The Florida State University. He has a degree in Media and Communication Studies, which means that he knows how to talk to you, be it one on one, in a small group, or in a large group/mass venue. It doesn’t matter how or where, he can communicate a message! And that’s what he loves doing: communicating. His main venue? His designs.
Nathaniel is primarily a graphic designer, but also loves delving into motion design as well. A designer of 4 years, he is still green in comparison to some more established designers. But don’t let his relatively small portfolio fool you: he is growing quickly and is very excited about where God is taking him with his art. Not only is he passionate about art and technology, he is also fascinated with the philosophy and theology of design & technology. “Why?” is a question often running through his brain, and if there is no answer, it doesn’t make the cut. His desire is to share his passion with the rest of the world. If it will listen to him, of course.
God has placed a burden on Nathaniel’s heart for the Church. He has shown Nathaniel that the modern church is not what He desires it to be, and is seeking change. He knows that God desires the church to be one, just as He and his Son are one (John 17:20-21), but Nathaniel isn’t quite sure how God will use him in this endeavor. He does know, however, that God is faithful and will show Nathaniel in the proper time. The exciting thing is that life is an adventure and God wants us to explore and figure out exactly what it is he wants us to do (Romans 12:2).
Nathaniel is Proctor’s awesome summer intern at Grateful Incovenience. He does it all: somersaults, push-ups, and spit balls. Be careful: if you see him in the wild, he may walk up to you and give you a high five. Go ahead and follow him at http://www.nathanielks.com and @nathanielks!
