I was born in Pennsylvania and grew up in several towns there, as well as in Connecticut. When studying English and Philosophy as an undergraduate, I began to seriously consider teaching as a vocation and a career. After graduation, I worked as a teaching intern for a middle school in Boston, Massachusetts. Teaching seemed to be the right fit, but my true calling was to higher education. I therefore went on to earn my master’s degree in Boston. Just after graduation, my wife and I moved out to Milwaukee, Wisconsin so that I could attend Marquette University’s doctoral program. Numerous years and three children later, I finally graduated. I am blessed to have been able to take a position with Saint Leo at its North Charleston center.

Community Affiliation:

  • Member of North American Patristics Society

Teaching & Professional Interests:

My field of study is early Church history and theology. I am particularly interested in the Western Latin tradition up to the fifth century. Areas of research include Christology, Trinitarian theology, and the intersection between Greco-Roman philosophy and Christianity. Through my teaching for Saint Leo, I have also had the great fortune of engaging more contemporary theological issues. Most notably, one of my favorite topics to study and teach is the reestablishment of the permanent diaconate in the Catholic Church.
