About Me.

In late 2020, I learned of my Asperger Syndrome profile. For me, Asperger’s presents itself as an ability for extreme focus, which translates into the skill of doing long stints of very precise, repetitive line-work, and patterns large and small.


May 2024 marked my second solo exhibition at Gordy Fine Art, the gallery that represents my art. The first show was in September 2021. That solo exhibition included several Buddhist-themed pieces, all of which integrated research with personal artistic and spiritual practice. Hence, it is no surprise that I am working on a book tentatively titled, Zen and the Artful Buddhist: Asperger’s, Art, and Academia.

When I'm not working on my art, I enjoy playing disc golf, cycling, reading (especially comics), fishing, and other outdoors activities.



University of Pittsburgh, Ph.D.

Religious Studies, with a concentration on religions of South Asia, especially modern Hindu traditions. Lived in Pune, Maharashtra (India) for three years, with grant funding from American Institute of Indian Studies, NSEP, and Fulbright-Hays. Secondary concentration is Buddhism.

Princeton Theological Seminary, M.Div.

Concentration in History of Religions and Theology.

University of California, Santa Barbara, B.A.

Religious Studies major, mainly focused on Asian religions. Honestly, I went to UCSB because I didn't want to go to UCLA due to the commute. Instead, I got to live at the beach, without the crowds! (BTW, I'm a huge UCLA fan, so it's not personal!)
