Welcome. I am a historian of religion in America and the early American republic. After receiving my PhD from George Mason University I came to Princeton Theological Seminary to pursue an M.Div. in hopes of actively working along the intersections of the church and the academy.

I am working on several exciting things at the moment which you can reach from this site. I am currently crafting a digital exhibit for the LGBTQ Religious Archives Network that will launch in August 2024. Additionally, I am putting the finishing touches on a manuscript project that explores the history of religion and archaeology as a way of wrestling with the nature and development of literalism – so stay tuned for where you can find and read that!

While you’re waiting for the book to come out you can get to know my work through some of the articles I have published. If you’re interested in the history of empire in the early United States, or the long afterlife of ancient Babylon in America, check out my article in the Journal of the Early Republic. If you’re interested in either the storied roots of antisemitism in America or the ways early Americans tried to be both a “new Rome” and a “new Israel,” check out my article in Church History. Feel free to reach out to me for copies of either of these articles.
