About Me

Eric Owens Writer of Antimaximalist

Hey, I’m Eric, the writer behind Antimaximalist. I’m just a simple guy constantly seeking happiness and meaning in life. I was born in South Carolina where I was raised on faith, family, and football. My childhood was filled with the typical joys of video games and playing outside. Dissatisfied with my life as I got into my late teens and early 20’s, I got a degree in Philosophy and studied a lot of religious courses. I had an increasing desire to figure out how to get what I wanted out of life.

Today I’m still figuring that out, but I’m much closer than I ever was before with practicing minimalism, and I hope to bring you closer as well. The name Antimaximalist came out of a conversation with my girlfriend, Jhanelle, as we were thinking about ways we could inspire others. I have a passion for writing and always wanted to build a successful blog. Jhanelle is a minimalist herself and enjoys working on all the technical stuff with the site, but she may write a blog or two in the future.

We look forward to Antimaximalist being a place for you to read thoughts and ideas that inspire you to live the best life you can as you grow in your minimalist journey.
