I am a priest of the Catholic Church having been Received into the Church in London, United Kingdom in 1991.
Previously I taught in secondary schools in Zambia, Canada and the United Kingdom before becoming an officer in the Royal Canadian Navy. As an Intelligence officer I served in Canada, the United Kingdom and the countries surrounding the Persian Gulf and loaned to the United States Navy.
In preparation for the priesthood I studied at the Grand Séminaire de Montréal and its component the «Institut de Formation théologique de Montréal» in Philosophy and Theology for the Lateran Pontifical University. I have presented and published articles in bioethics and history to conferences in North America, eastern Europe and Africa.
I speak English and French fluently. I recently studied German through Goethe-Insitut thirty years after studying German at the University of King’s College and completed online courses in Biblical Hebrew through Jerusalem University online.

I completed Post Doctoral studies in Education at McGill University in Montréal, Canada.
