Cigarettes & Wine



My teaching, research, and fictional writing focuses on the intersections of sexualities, gender, religion, and health in the interpersonal and historical experiences of sexual, gender, and religious minorities.  I am particularly interested in the ways Interactionist, Feminist, and Queer theories may illuminate socially constructed “ways of knowing” via mixed-methodological research and fictional stories.

I received my Ph.D from Florida State University in 2012.  I am currently an Assistant Professor and the Director of the Applied Sociology program in the Department of History, Sociology, Geography, and Legal Studies at the University of Tampa.
