Introducing Taylor Petrey

We have another guest blogger starting today: Taylor Petrey. Taylor lives in Medford, Massachusetts and is getting ready to begin his Ph.D program at Harvard Divinity School with an emphasis in the New Testament and early Christianity. Taylor grew up (appropriately enough) in Taylorsville, Utah and served a mission in Italy. He graduated from Pace University in New York City. (His lengthy stay on the island of Manhattan doesn’t seem to have caused any lasting harm.) He has also graduated from Harvard Divinity School with a Masters of Theological Studies. He speaks or reads Italian, German, Ancient Greek, and Coptic. He is currently studying Hebrew. He’s one of the smartest and most interesting people I know, and many of my fondest memories from law school are of meeting Taylor for lunch. He lives off of the generosity of his wife Stacey, a former investment banker who now rules the universe in New Hampshire. (States in New England are ridiculously small.) They have a dog named Favio.

    I fogot to mention that Taylor’s liguistic repitoire also includes French and Latin.

    Two biblical scholars in one week–not bad. Good to have you with us, Taylor.

    Does that mean that Stacey couldn’t dominate a state larger than one of those “ridiculously small” New England states? Maybe we shouldn’t sell her so short. I know a few wives who could take on very large regions…

    No. It just means that the commute from Medford to New Hampshire is not as long as someone living in say Texas might think…

    As a former student of your college debate partner, I’m excited to read your posts. Welcome, Taylor.
