I have been working at SLU since 2003. My research focuses in three areas: the writings of Francis of Assisi, those of Bonaventure, and the mural decoration of the upper church of the Basilica of Saint Francis in Assisi.
Beyond my teaching and research I enjoy the blessings of many friends and family with whom I laugh often. My wife Nancy is a physical therapist and avid marathoner. My four boys Jacob (13), Lucas (11), Nicholas (9), and Andrew (7) remind me that meaningful relationships are the greatest gifts.
