About Me

1428009190280.1I am a doctoral candidate in Classics at the University of California, Irvine. My research interests include ancient biography, Greek and Latin historiography, the New Testament, early Christianity, and the early Roman Empire. For a further description of my research studies in Classics, see here. I also study philosophy in my graduate work and write on topics such as ethics, epistemology, and metaphysics. I completed my M.A. in Classics (emphasis in “Ancient History”) at the University of Arizona with a master’s thesis studying the use of ring composition in Suetonius Tranquillus’ De Vita Caesarum.

Apart from graduate work, I am also an advocate of secular humanism, naturalist philosophy, and church-state secularism, and write separately about these issues on my other blog Civitas Humana.
