Professionally, I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Clemson University interested in how religion both affects and is affected by all other aspects of life. My work has been published in a variety of outlets including the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, Social Science Quarterly, the Journal of Family Issues, and the Sociology of Religion, among others. After earning my PhD but before arriving at Clemson, I directed the U.S. Congregational Life Survey housed at the PC(USA) Center in Louisville, KY, and taught as an Assistant Professor of Sociology in Mobile, AL. I am also a Senior Research Associate with the ARDA, an online religion data archive ( Personally, I adore my wife and our three children. I enjoy being active outdoors (usually in the form of either running, biking, and swimming, and sometimes all three consecutively) and watching/following all sorts of sports.
