About the Author
Falcon brings an eclectic collection of experiences to his work. He was educated at Fordham, Yale and Emory Universities and holds a BA and MA in philosophy, a Certificate of Concentration in Social thought, an MDiv, and a Ph.D. in Biblical Theology. At Yale, he was named a Timothy Dwight Fellow. As an academic he is a published scholar. Falcon spent much of his adult life working in technology. Twice during the 1990s, he was listed in “Who’s Who in Biblical Studies and Archaeology.” During that time he was a frequent speaker at the national convention of the American Academy of Religion and the Society of Biblical Literature. He was a consultant to AT&T Bell Labs for more than a decade. In 1998, he was awarded a prestigious Computerworld-Smithsonian Medal for his accomplishments in technology. He had been nominated by Michael Dell. A poet and writer, a number of his pieces have been published in literary magazines, Falcon’s photographic work reflects the eclectic contours of his life.
Falcon read the Iliad and the Odyssey at seven. Reading these books would frame his life around a single question: “What does it mean to be human?” Over the course of his life, Falcon has pursued the answer to this question relentlessly in every thing he has done. At nine, he read Einstein’s “Relativity” along with every science book the local library had. His fascination with theoretical physics and chemistry, which began shortly after reading “Relativity”, continued through his teen years. By the time he was eight, he was routinely dissecting animals in his basement lab. A chance discovery of a gray fox skeleton when he was ten led him to become a volunteer at Yale’s Peabody Museum where he remained for two years.
