Born and raised in Southeastern Massachusetts, I earned a bachelor's in government from Georgetown and a law degree from Notre Dame before entering the Society of Jesus (aka 'the Jesuits') in 2004. After taking vows as a Jesuit scholastic in August 2006, I studied philosophy at Fordham University and taught the same subject at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia. In August of 2012, I moved to Toronto to begin studies in theology at Regis College, a Jesuit institution federated with the University of Toronto, in preparation for ordination as a Catholic priest. I was ordained to the priesthood in Chicago on June 13, 2015.
