Educational Background

    BA - Westminster College, Philosophy - 2017


Queer folklore, contemporary legends, ghostlore, and material culture.


I am currently finishing my MA in Folklore Studies at Utah State University and will be graduating at the end of the 2023 Spring Semester. When I am not teaching or researching for a new conference paper, I spend my time working on the Intermountain West LGBTQ+ Oral History Project. This project will debut by March 2023 as a digital exhibit and collection at Utah State University’s Libraries Special Collections and Archives.
