Hello! What kind of “about section” are you looking for—a fun one, or a boring one? I’ll give you both and let you pick.
I graduated from Brigham Young University in 2021 with a major in ancient Near Eastern studies (emphasis in Biblical Hebrew) and a minor in editing—the former explains the prevalence of Old Testament subjects in my post, while the later explains the prevalence of footnotes.
I have presented my research and ideas at four conferences at BYU, including the Religious Education Student Symposium, and at the Undergraduate Theological Conference in Creighton University. I have published a research paper on biblical narrative archetypes in Studia Antiqua: A Student Journal for the Study of the Ancient Near East and two papers on linguistic subjects in Schwa: Language and Linguistics.
For four years, I worked as editor and then editing team lead for BYU Continuing Education’s online curriculum department, where I helped develop courses ranging from Foundations of the Restoration to Planetary Geology. I also served as the editor in chief of the student journal Studia Antiqua and worked on a research team building a database of mercantile texts from the ancient site of Karum Kanesh, Turkey.
I currently work as the operations manager and conference manager for the Latter-day Saint Publishing and Media Association (LDSPMA), a nonprofit networking organization for writers, editors, publishers, artists, and creators who belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
I am in the process of completing a young-adult epic fantasy novel about a pyromancer’s quest to save his soul.
