I received my BA in Philosophy and Theology from Point Loma Nazarene University in December 2010, and I'm currently pursuing a Master's in Theological Studies at Vanderbilt.
My current theological interests are sacramental and liturgical theology, examined through the lens of deconstructive/deconstructed postmodern philosophy. My most-cited scholars include Louis-Marie Chauvet, Jacques Derrida, and John Caputo (but not necessarily in that order).
I've posted full versions of some of the papers I've written below. You can also read their abstracts HERE.
