My broad academic interest is in the literature and theology of 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 accounts of divine life-giving benefaction. My thesis compares the theological logics of Galatians, 4 Maccabees, and 4 Ezra, and was written under the supervision of Professor John M.G. Barclay.
After three years in Durham, UK, my family and I returned to St. Louis, MO. I support Mizzou football and basketball and Manchester United FC.
