Bio: I was born in east Tennessee and grew up in Tampa, Florida. I am married to Vanessa and we have a son named Atticus (who is 19 months old as of April 2011). Most of my work attempts to bring continental philosophy of religion into conversation with mainstream debates in political theory and analytic philosophy of religion. I am an avid fisherman and I have recently been getting into white-water kayaking.
