I recently received my PhD in Religion at the University of Denver (2021) with a focus on remix theory and contemporary Buddhism.
I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Central Florida (2007), receiving my BA with Honors in Humanities and a minor in Anthropology, and received my MA from the University of South Florida (2009) in Religious Studies.
I previously held positions as an instructor at both of those institutions, along with Valencia College (I’ve listed some previous courses taught here). I also co-founded Nomos Journal in 2012 and served as its chief editor until its dissolution at the end of 2019 (follow link for archived content).
Outside of my formal studies, I like to strum around on my guitar, mandolin, and ukulele, and slowly make my way up Colorado’s 14ers. I love to read and travel, and have been gradually learning more about urban foraging and local wild edibles. I’ve also been a homebrewer since 2008 (and a connoisseur for much longer!) making beer, mead, and cider, and have been fortunate enough to win a few medals in brewing competitions over the years.
Below you’ll find some of the latest posts in a continuation of the column I started at Nomos Journal: Remixing Religion.
