I talk and write about religion and politics a lot, which I'm pretty sure makes me the best kind of dinner guest.
I earned a PhD 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.
I am currently revising my dissertation for publication as a book that analyzes 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).
I am the Assistant Director of the Office of Graduate Fellowships and Awards at Florida State University.
All of my best content is on Twitter.
