Preferred pronouns: he/him

Subdiscipline: Archaeology


I am pursuing a master’s degree in Anthropology focusing on Mediterranean Archaeology. I hold a BA in History from North Greenville University (SC), a second BA in Religious Studies with an Anthropology minor from the University of Tennessee. I am a US Navy veteran where I served aboard the USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD-6) homeported in Sasebo, Japan (2012-2016).

My research interests, broadly speaking, include the archaeology of the ancient world to include the Ancient Mediterranean and Near East. I have a particular interest in archaeology of the frontiers of the Roman Empire, the cultural and economic interactions between the East and West in Antiquity, food production and consumption, the archaeology of Religion and Ritual, and religion in the Roman world.

My fieldwork and professional experience include participating in the 2019 field season of the ‘Ayn Gharandal Archaeological Project in Jordan through UTK directed by Drs. Erin and Robert Darby; assisting in the public archaeology phase of the RiverLine Project at the University of Tennessee Research Park at Cherokee Farm under the direction of Dr. Kandace Hollenbach; trained in the use of Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI).
