After completing undergraduate studies at a small liberal arts college in the Midwest, I earned masters' and doctoral degrees at the University of Notre Dame. My dissertation focused on the reception and transformation of Ezekiel 40-48 in the earliest Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible, the Septuagint. This research appealed to me because it allowed me to explore the transformation and adaptation of authoritative tradition to fit new needs and new contexts, a perennial problem in theological and religious studies. My continuing research interests are quite broad, including the nature and identity of prophets, seers, and religious intermediaries and their relation to their larger societies, the search for God (mysticism), and inner-biblical exegesis.

I am excited about teaching at WJU because I believe strongly in the Jesuit tradition of fostering discernment, encouraging students to integrate theological reflection within a larger worldview, and educating the whole person. When I am not teaching, I am normally home with my beautiful wife Jamie, and our three young children (Ian, age 6; Aidan, age 5; and Mara, 1½). I enjoy Notre Dame football, hockey, and hummus.
