I have a Masters of the Arts in Social Sciences with a focus in Anthropology from the University of Chicago and a Bachelors of the Arts in Creative Writing from University of Chicago. Before that, I received a mostly classical education at what was then Mesa Preparatory Academy. My academic research at the University of Chicago focused on the formation of self, particularly social networks and Eastern Orthodox Icons. My English studies at University of Evansville focused on World Myths, Norse mythology, and Tolkien, while my minor in Anthropology covered a range of topics.
Currently, I am teaching English in Casablanca, Morocco.
