  • Why I Love Teaching at Molloy College

    Small class size means I really get to know my students, who are bright and willing to learn new ideas.

  • Academic Interests

    My work focuses on theology and religion in American culture. I focus specifically on the intersection of religion/theology and technology, the internet, and media.

  • What I am working on
    • Preparing my dissertation manuscript, a theology of the internet, for publication
    • Exploring all kinds of virtual spaces, especially those which are explicitly or implicitly religious in nature
    • Usually a set of Legos
  • Educational Philosophy

    Always be open to surprises, as both a teacher and a student.
