I am an associate professor of Hebrew Bible at the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry, where I teach mostly Masters-level students preparing for careers in ministry. I have been at BC for seven years, and before that I taught for four years at Seattle University. I have been fortunate at both universities to work with students and colleagues who are passionate about justice and service.
I am originally from Raleigh, NC, and first learned about the Jesuits through a post-college volunteer year with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps (Oakland, CA). That experience led me to pursue a Masters degree in theology at the Weston Jesuit School of Theology, which later affiliated with BC and became its School of Theology and Ministry. So in a way I am teaching at my alma mater.
In my personal life, I am married (my wife Emily works as a chaplain at Holy Cross) and have two sons (ages 11 and 9). My hobbies are swimming and reading fiction.
