What Does that Say About Me?

I was recently asked to write a brief bio for something. Such things are always awkward. It could hardly fail to reveal one's self-conception, so analyze away!

Trent came to Rochester to take up a Dean’s Fellowship in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Rochester. He also teaches Logic and Inquiry at Nazareth College. An active inquirer himself, he is a convert to the Catholic Church from evangelical Protestantism. As such he appreciates that which is distinctively Catholic and seeks to encourage those around him to grapple with what it means to be a Catholic. He is active in all outdoor sports in which he usually participates with his wife—Sarah—and two daughters—Fiona (7) and Chesney (5). All members of the family are active downhill and cross-country skiers, mountain bikers, and rock climbers. When he’s not reading C.S. Lewis or Tolkien to his family or writing a paper he is an active Blogger (The Counsel of Trent). Sarah is a full-time, home-schooling Mom, artist, and triathlete, Fiona just celebrated her First Communion and enjoys reading history and building faerie-houses, Chesney likes to draw and dance and dig.

I'm just curious, is the different spelling for counsel an intentional pun (rather than Council of Trent)?

Seems like a good bio to me.

Hmmm, let's see...theologically obsessed Catholic boy named Trent...
