Research Area/s: 

Book of Proverbs and Wisdom Texts


I’m a 3rd year DPhil student in Hebrew Bible. My research focuses on comparing the editorial techniques of the Greek and Hebrew versions of the Book of Proverbs. Prior to Oxford, I earned a MA in Ancient Philology at Polis in Jerusalem where I studied ancient Greek and Hebrew as spoken languages. I live in Austin, TX (thankfully near several golf courses) with my wife, two children, and poodle, Henry.
