Originally from Ontario, Canada, I hold a BA in the humanities and a MA in theological studies. In addition to my doctoral research, I am currently training for ordained ministry in the Church of England at Cranmer Hall.

Current research

My research explores how an encounter with a theology of work in the context of a church's discipleship programme causes Christian workers both to reimagine the significance and meaning of their work and to reorient how they think about and practice their work.

Research Interests

  • Systematic and historical theology
