Drew Rick-Miller

Contributing Editor, ORBITER magazine

In those formative teenage years, Drew just couldn’t make up his mind: “Do I want to be a baseball player, a journalist, an engineer, or something else?” At Northwestern University—Go Cats!—he realized he would be none of those (if only that fastball had been faster, or the curve had really curved) and focused instead on physics and English literature. Then Drew did what every lit major/physics minor does—pursue theology, of course. While at Princeton Theological Seminary, his indecision continued—pastor, theologian, or this new-found passion for religion and science? He settled on the latter and after a few years at the Metanexus Institute and more than a decade with the John Templeton Foundation, he has come full circle—by trying to engineer a journalism career, covering science and religion with ORBITER.
