Major Interests: I was born and raised in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania and graduated from the College of William & Mary in 2019 with a B.A. in Classical Studies and Religious Studies. My early undergraduate studies centered on the relationship between imperial Rome and early Christian groups, before I developed an interest in the philosophy of religion. I plan to continue my studies in the philosophy of religion, focusing upon religious pluralism, the interrelation of religion and political and economic power, and religion within capitalism. I am particularly interested in the processes by which transformative religious messages are interpreted to affirm entrenched power structures.
