I was born and raised in Houston, TX and have lived in Arlington, VA; Jerusalem, Israel; New York City; and Aspen, CO. I studied Classics and Judaic Studies at Princeton University (2003) and was ordained by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR) in New York in 2010. From 2010-2017, I was the rabbi of the Aspen Jewish Congregation, serving the Roaring Fork Valley of Western Colorado. My wife, Cantor Rollin Simmons, was my co-clergy.
In July 2017, we moved to Houston, TX, where my wife is the cantor at Congregation Emanu El. In addition to freelance religion writing for the Houston Chronicle, from 2017-21, I was the Texas Lead Organizer for the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism. I built a statewide organization of Reform synagogues in Texas (RAC-TX) and worked with congregations across the state to make their justice work more strategic and rooted in their people's stories. We mobilized in the 2021 Texas Legislative session to protect the freedom to vote.
In the fall of 2021, I will be a 1L at University of Houston Law Center, continuing to pursue my interest in justice work through the lens of law.
