Teaching, writing, producing, and NGO work has taken me across the globe and this site is an effort to try to draw together the many strands and to make it accessible to those interested in learning more, partnering, and taking these ideas and projects further.

I am a social entrepreneur, writer, and teacher. Currently based in Berlin, I have served in a number of leadership capacities in academia, business, and non-profits and have pioneered the applicaiton of data-driven methods to reduce and prevent religion-related violence. Previously, I served as Lecturer and Associate Director of the Initiative on Religion, Politics and Conflict at the University of Virginia, and was Economist at Lehrman, Bell, Mueller and Canon in Washington, DC. I have taught and held fellowships at Yale University, University of Cambridge, University of Virginia, and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

My current projects including Co-Producing the documentary Uncommon Fellows, research and writing on the ways in which faith has informed business, politics, and culture, and founding Filter Media, a start-up that provides technological tools for assessing the reliability and bias of news articles consumed through social media platforms. 


Filter Media is a tech startup that provides tools for automatically assessing the reliability and political bias of news articles. Drawing on the latest in machine learning and natural language processing, Filter Media allows social media users to quickly and easily see how trustworthy an article, post, or link is. 

Uncommon Fellows is a collaborative documentary series that seeks to bring together leading scientists, philosophers, theologians, and musicians for three days of conscious thought, civil discourse, sharing of ideas without agenda.
