Christopher is a Jesuit scholastic from Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He has enjoyed coastal living on either side of the United States, studying theology, philosophy, and music at the University of San Diego and receiving a Master of Divinity from Boston College and a Master of Social Work from Loyola University Chicago. After several years of being a hospital chaplain and theme-park entertainer, he finally surrendered to a 25+ year priesthood “approach-avoidance conflict” by joining the Society of Jesus in 2016. He is grateful for the opportunity to love God and God’s people for the rest of his life as a Jesuit. Christopher is currently a school counselor at Christ the King Jesuit College Prep on Chicago's West Side.
