I talk and write about religion and politics a lot, which I'm pretty sure makes me the best kind of dinner guest.
On the politics side, I am the Chief of Staff for Tallahassee Mayor John Dailey.
On the religion side, I earned a PhD in Religion from Florida State University where I studied sexual slander and identity formation in early Christianity. I also hold an MA in Religion and an MDiv from Gardner-Webb University, and a BA in Religious Studies from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
My dissertation analyzed the "heresy" of the 2nd century Alexandrian Christian Carpocrates and what it can teach us about sexuality and the soul in early Christianity (you can read a slightly longer introduction to my work here).
To read some things I've written, check out my Publications page.
All of my best content is on Twitter.
