Hello! I'm Chance. I'm a PhD candidate here at Harvard in Religion with a particular focus on early Christian and Jewish history. I live here with my partner Anca, who studies religion and history in colonial America at Harvard as well, and our two cats: Sophia and Lilith. Before moving to Boston, I spent most of my life in southern Minnesota. I've worked a range of jobs, from serving ice cream at Dairy Queen and working as an elementary school summer janitor to excavating ancient Jewish synagogues and cataloguing some of Benjamin Franklin's letters. Outside of working on the PhD and as a Proctor, I enjoy singing, hiking, and visiting museums. We're looking forward to meeting you all!
