My work engages rhetorical and psychological strategies within cultural niches.  These niches include interpersonal & academic discourse, society & religion, art & media, and particular personal microcosms.  I am especially interested in how we human beings compose our world(s) in relation to issues of mortality, creativity, spirituality/secularity, and conceptions of information.  I seek to understand and negotiate what I see as individual and collective struggles for survival, well-being, and inspiration in a complex universe.  Current projects include Death in Documentaries: The Memento Mori Experience and Explaining Jesus: A Case in the Interdisciplinary Studies of Religions.
