Facts, in no particular order:
My dissertation research was based in Deline, in the Sahtu region of Canada’s Northwest Territories, pictured in most of the photos on this site. I took the photos and I’m not a spectacular photographer; the place just that beautiful on its own. If you’d like to have a look at the dissertation, feel free to contact me.
I have also done field research and some project work for Traditional Arts Indiana, an organization that does incredible work with Indiana artists.
I earned my Ph.D. in Folklore with a minor in Anthropology from the Indiana University Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology. I studied under Jason Baird Jackson.
I earned my M.A. with Distinction in Comparative Literature from University College London.
I earned my Honours B.A. with Distinction in English and Philosophy from Queen’s University.
I used to be the feature news writer for Earth Eats, a southern-Indiana-based podcast, public radio program, and website about sustainable food. Find my pieces here.
I’m a regularly contributing freelancer at the Limestone Post. Find my stuff here.
I was interviewed for an article in a local publication about being gay in Bloomington, Indiana. I’m not in it much – the older folks have much more interesting stories – but you can read it here.
