I first became interested in working with New Testament manuscripts in 2017 when I became a volunteer transcriber for the Greek Paul Project with the Museum of the Bible and the International Greek New Testament Project with the University of Birmingham. My exposure to the handwriting and various scribal features opened my eyes to the world of early biblical transmission and how the presentation of the text in manuscripts spoke to the way the New Testament was seen at the time.
I received my Master of Theology from Phoenix Seminary as the first fellow of their Text and Canon Institute, specializing in the origin and transmission of Greek into lower case handwriting. My time there was very formative and essential in preparing me to pursue my current research.
I also would not be here without the constant love and support of my wife and our 5 children. When I am not researching or reading, I enjoy hiking with them and exploring the United Kingdom.
