I'm a writer/journalist by trade, but keep one foot in the world of academic humanities, and recently finished my PhD at Georgetown. About twelve years ago I cofounded one of the first popular online magazines about religion, KillingTheBuddha.com, which led to a few books approaching the subject through a number of genres (travelogue, memoir, fiction, history). I'm currently a fellow at the Smithsonian working on finding new ways to include religion in the exhibits of the National Museum of American History.
