Matt D’Antuono was a beer-drinking college frat rugby player nicknamed “Tank Top” who didn’t care about his Catholic faith. Soon enough, he put down the beer and picked up the bible. He became anti-Catholic, but a search for the truth led him “back to Rome.” He’s now a brilliant Catholic apologist and philosopher. He has two bachelor's and two master’s degrees and is working on his doctorate. Oh, by the way, he’s also a public high school physics teacher! He’s an associate of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal and writes for the National Catholic Register. He has authored several books on philosophy, including A Fool’s Errand. Yet most of all, he’s a loving, faithful, devout husband to his wife Emily and the father of their nine children (four adopted) who live on a hobby farm while homeschooling. Reading his resume is so exhaustive that it makes you want to nap, but hearing and seeing him tell his story perks you so up that you’ll be hanging on his every word. Welcome, Matt “Tank Top” D’Antuono to A Holy Mess!
