Other information
Caleb has participated in a number of artistic collaborations. Before moving to the UK, he served at the Harbor, a non-denominational community of faith, as the Creative Director, working closely with a team of local artists on projects which sought to communicate scriptural truths to those inside and outside the congregation. In one of these projects, he partnered with the street/fine artist David Popa to create five massive mixed media paintings for the sanctuary foyer inspired by Rudolf Otto’s classic text The Idea of the Holy. Since arriving at St Andrews, Caleb has collaborated with the composer Seán Doherty and the poet Marjorie Lotfi Gill to produce a new choral setting and poem inspired by 1 Samuel 3 for ITIA’s TheoArtistry project. He also coordinated TheoArtistry’s Poets Scheme and currently serves as the coordinator for TheoArtistry’s Student-led Collaborations.

When he has time, Caleb enjoys exploring castle ruins, learning about local folklore, trying unique foods and sketching.
