He writes for Townhall.com, has written for Foxnews.com and other publications, and has been featured on FOX News discussing international adoption.

He completed the 2014 Christian Leadership Seminar at the International School of Holocaust Studies (Yad Vashem) in Israel and was a 2014-2015 Leonine Fellow of the Catholic Information Center in Washington, D.C.
