About Me

Since 1977, I have taught Classics, and I have loved every minute of it. I have been fortunate to teach many, many courses, covering just about every area of the ancient Greco-Roman world. It is my great privilege and joy to say that if I had it to do over again, to choose a different education and career, I would still choose this one.

Why I’m At Mary

When Cardinal Muench Seminary closed in 2011, I was brought here to start a Classics program. Deo gratias.
