About Me

I’m a layman within the Episcopal Church with a Ph.D. in New Testament and an interest in most things medieval, monastic, and liturgical.

20131124_124812My chief job is keeping up with my priestly wife and our two awesome girls. In addition to that, I earn a living doing a 9 to 5 job in the corporate world, run the St Bede’s Breviary, listen to loud goth/industrial music, and do some stuff for the church. I currently serve on the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music.

I can explain my life rather simply: during the day, I work my day-job; in the evenings, I drive the girls to and from ballet; at night, I write. In my spare time (ha!), I enjoying distance running, martial arts, cooking, and brewing my own porters and stouts.

For another take on me, here is an interview that Richard Mammana and I did for The Living Church.
