Curriculum Vitae

I am interested in Christian theology, philosophy, and the intersection of the two. I attempt to approach issues through a fusion of analytic, phenomenological, and Thomistic insights.

I can be contacted via the form on the home page of this website.

    • Dissertation: A constructive-theological phenomenology of Scripture
      I propose a properly phenomenological investigation of the act of reading the Bible as Scripture for the sake of a constructive-theological proposal regarding the nature and interrelations of Scripture, Tradition, and Church as source and authorities for theology.
