I am the middle child of seven born in Alexandria, Virginia. At the age of two I moved to Wilmington, St. John the Beloved parish, where I have lived ever since. I attended grade school at St. Matthew’s as well Seton Home Study School and Aquinas Academy. For the first two years of high school I attended Aquinas Academy and then homeschooled again for the last two years. I graduated from Seton Hall’s College Seminary, St. Andrew’s Hall in South Orange, NJ and then was sent to the Pontifical North American College in Rome for four years where I earned an S.T.B. in Theology from the Pontifical Gregorian University and an M.A. in Dogma from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in the City (Angelicum). I was ordained on June 18th 2011, by Bishop Malooly and was assigned to Immaculate Conception/St. Jude’s Parish in Elkton and North East, MD. After three years I was moved to St. Francis de Sales/Holy Redeemer in Salisbury and Delmar, MD where I spent another three years until my move to Holy Cross, Dover and Immaculate Conception, Marydel for one year until my move to St. Edmond’s. I am excited to be here and look forward to meeting everyone. I ask that you keep me in your prayers and know that you are in mine. And please be patient, it takes me a while to learn names ☺.
