“But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20:24).

Born and raised in Massachusetts, New England raised me on the age old cornerstones of intellectual discourse, Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee, and of course, New England Patriots football (Sorry, Brady haters!)

Through my experiences living and serving abroad, I’ve been struck by the profound work of the gospel in bridging cultural divisions. Whether between singles and marrieds, men and women, old and young, black and white, or introverted and extroverted, the gospel has something to say.

I’m currently writing as a regular contributor at Boundless, pursuing my M.A. in Intercultural Studies at TEDS, and teaching AP English in East Asia.
