I am a scholar of the history and modern reception of the ancient Mediterranean and Near East. My forthcoming book, Paul and the Citizen Body, is currently in production and should be out in 2021. An interview on it is at the Center for Hebraic Thought. My work has focused on Second Temple Judaism, early Christianity, and the Hellenistic and Roman Greek East, including Biblica (and again), Neotestamentica, Journal of Early Christian History, Open Theology, Journal for the Study of the Pseudepigrapha, Postscripts, and Studia Patristica (and again).
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.
