Earned a PhD in Rhetoric and Literature from the University of Texas-Austin. Currently teaching at Arizona State University.
Academic articles I have written on Battlestar Galactica:
"Why Your Mormon Neighbor Know More about This Show than You Do" and "Coduction: Cylons, Colonials, and Criticism" in Battlestar Galactica and Philosophy: Mission Accomplished or Mission Frakked Up?.
UPDATE: I have been contacted by Sunstone magazine, a somewhat left of center (and unofficial) Mormon magazine that deals with Mormon culture. They have contacted Open Court about reprinting the first essay above and they want me to write a few pages of retrospective/reflection now that the series is over. It won't appear in the next issue, but they'll let me know when it will appear.
