I am the founding executive director of Catholic Climate Covenant. it is a privilege to work every day with our partners and sympathizers to share the good news of Catholic teaching in regards to creation. Prior to this work, I spent 11 years in the Department of Justice, Peace and human development at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and three years in the Office of Social Action of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. After graduating from Xavier University in Cincinnati, I joined the Jesuit volunteer, where I met my wife Susie (also a volunteer). I got a M. A in Franciscan Theology in Berkeley, CA in 1989. Susie and I have three children: Benjamin, Anna and Zachary.
