I am a doctoral student in New Testament and Ancient Judaism at Durham University and a tutor in Biblical Studies for the Lindisfarne Regional Training Partnership.

My broad academic interest is in Early Christianity and Ancient Judaism in the Greco-Roman world of the first and second century C.E. My primary areas of research are ancient biblical interpretation, the Pauline epistles, the literature of diaspora and Palestinian Judaism, and Jewish and Christian theologies of salvation. I am currently writing a thesis comparing the theological logics of Galatians, 4 Maccabees, and 4 Ezra under the supervision of Professor John M.G. Barclay.

Before arriving in Durham in the fall of 2012, I served as a pastor in St. Louis, MO for eight years. I am a life-long Missouri resident, a Saint Louis Cardinals baseball fan, and an avid supporter of Mizzou football and basketball. I have a wife and three boys.
