I specialized in the ancient Near East for graduate school, but my interests in history and religion span the globe and all time periods. Of particular interest to me is comparative mythology, symbolism, and demonology. I offer research, writing, and historical consultation services in the areas of history and religion.
In addition to publishing on The Ancient History Encyclopedia, I have book reviews published on Reading Religion. My book Images of America: Manheim is set to be released on February 22, 2021. It is about the history of my hometown of Manheim and includes over 200 historical photos. The website linked below is called Journal of Tales and it is where I post articles about history, religion, and world cultures.
Traveling is one of my favorite things in life. Additionally, in my free time, I spend a lot of time outdoors and take photos of plants, flowers, architecture, and unique things I find.
