I was born and raised in Southern California. After college I worked for some time in the retail industry while doing volunteer work for literacy programs and political campaigns. I joined the Franciscan Friars of St. Barbara Province in 1983 and after a time on the Akimel O’Otham Reservation (Arizona) went to Netherlands for five years to purse a theology degree with a focus on missiology. I have been teaching at the Franciscan School of Theology since 1997.
