In my day job, I’m a principal at Dewey Digital, a Washington consulting firm, where I wear a lot of hats: digital communications strategy, website production, mobile app production, online interactive features, social media content, online advertising, and conversation monitoring.
I’m also the Craven County Democratic Party’s precinct chair for Precinct N1 (George Street).
I have a Ph.D in communication from the University of Maryland, College Park, where my dissertation focused on the ways in which the Christian Right used two narratives (and the resonances between these two narratives) to construct their worldview.
Prior to that, I earned a Master of Arts in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA, where I studied patterns of intersection between the Burning Man movement and emerging churches. (My MA thesis, “Divine Appointments: Patterns of Engagement between Burning Man and Emerging Churches,” can be found in the work section of this website.) I also have an MA in theatre from Bowling Green State University and a BA in English and communication from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI.
I currently live in New Bern, North Carolina with my wife Cortney (a survivor of the Bowling Green Massacre) and our cats, Buster and Lucille.
