I am curious about issues surrounding the intersection of commonly perceived antitheses: science and faith, contemporary and traditional, academy and church. My approach to these uneasy engagements reflects a commitment to fostering dialogue among a range of perspectives. This website serves as a kind of repository for my ill-formed reflections on these matters.

My doctorate was taken at the University of Aberdeen, after which I secured a fellowship at the University of Tübingen. At the foothills of the Swabian Alps, I developed an appreciation for all things German: 19th  century idealism, Oktoberfest, Lutheranism, reliable public transportation, Jürgen Moltmann, to name just a few.

Currently, I am a teaching fellow in the religion department at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois.
