Ashley Perrien was born in 1975 and brought up in a catholic family going to church every week until around 11th grade. He spent most of his time growing up overseas (England and Norway) and moved back to the USA for college. He moved to Austin in late '99, stumbled across some wild eyed atheists with a TV show, went to a Sunday morning meeting and from there just got interested in all the ACA activities. After working behind the scenes for a couple years he tried out as co-host a few times and in spring of 2002 he took over as full time co-host under the tutelage of Martin Wagner. In March 2004 Martin decided to move on and he took over the host spot where he served until May 2005.
After getting married and taking a little break, he's back as an alternate co-host.
