By age 24, I had published over 70 articles (both scholastic and general titles) and was featured as an expert blogger in Theology on ConversantLife.com. I took Faithlife Corporations’s first print publication, Bible Study Magazine, from conception to reality in under six months. Library Journal ranked it one of the top 10 magazines launched in 2008.
My articles have been featured on high-profile web sites and I’ve been interviewed by national radio hosts and well-known publications. I have professionally studied Greek, Hebrew, and Syriac, and have a working knowledge of Aramaic and Latin. I live in “the city of subdued excitement,” Bellingham, Washington, with my wife and our dog.
