I am a scholar of the history and modern reception of the ancient Mediterranean and Near East. My work has focused on Second Temple Judaism, early Christianity, and the Hellenistic and Roman Greek East, including Biblica, Neotestamentica, Journal of Early Christian History, Journal for the Study of the Pseudepigrapha, and Postscripts.
I have taught at several universities and schools. I have served with AmeriCorps and the American Red Cross. In addition, I taught citizenship and ESL classes at Boat People, S.O.S.
