After graduating from the Denver Catholic Biblical School of the Archdiocese
of Denver and receiving an M.A. in Theology (Biblical Studies) from Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, I managed the Chicago Catholic Scripture School

Bible using the Catholic Biblical School curriculum (Paulist Press). In addition,
I taught basic Bible and Old Testament and New Testament introductions to catechists
and R.C.I.A. participants.

Currently, I teach in the Biblical Institute of the Diocese of Joliet (Illinois) and serve as Scripture consultant for
