About Me

I graduated from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Arts in Religion, and from Yale Divinity School with a Master of Arts in Religion, concentrating in Philosophical Theology. I am currently the Book Review Editor at The North American Anglican. The purpose of this website is to collect all of my writings in one convenient location. For each category pieces are listed from newest to oldest.
