My theological research and teaching is grounded in over a decade of professional and volunteer ministry.
I have worked in Roman Catholic Young Adult Ministry at the national, diocesan, college, and parish levels, which familiarized me with the spiritual realities of the students I continue to serve in the classroom. I began my tenure in young adult ministry as an intern for the Office of Religious Education at the Archdiocese of Los Angeles in 2009. While in Los Angeles, I also served in Resident Ministry at Mount St. Mary’s University. I continued my ministry in Boston as the Pastoral Minister for Young Adult Ministry at The Paulist Center Boston (2009-2013). During this time I also served as a Young Adult Ministry Consultant for BustedHalo, a national Catholic young adult ministry based in New York City.
I currently worship at St. Anthony Shrine in Boston, MA, where I volunteer as a liturgical minister and as a member of the community’s Worship Committee. Passionate about criminal justice and prison reform, I also volunteer with Partakers, the Boston-area prison education ministry.
I also enjoy sharing theology and religious-education presentations with popular audiences in various ministry settings. I do so on the page through my regular contributions to Give Us This Day.
