I am a doctoral student in theology and American religious history in Yale’s Religious Studies department. I study gay literature and Christian theology, and I expect to graduate in 2025 or 2026. At Yale, I work primarily with Linn Tonstad, Kathy Tanner, and Katie Lofton.
Lacey Jones and I organize Literature and Religion at Yale (LAR@Y), a working group that holds monthly discussions and will host conferences on new methods in religion and literature. With Alex Fialho, I help facilitate the Yale AIDS Studies working group.
I have a blue tick coonhound mix named Eva, short for Evangeline.
Throughout college, I used the blog portion of this website to share personal essays, poetry, and, thoughts on current events. The blog, these dated clouds, has now been closed, archived, put on the shelf. But you can read it here.
I have an online project that is sloooowly unfolding on gay/queer theology and the church: homodoxy.com.
