About meI am a contract archaeologist, living and working in Los Angeles County.

I received my Ph.D. in Anthropology, with a concentration in anthropological archaeology. My dissertation focused on Biblical Edom in the Near East.

I'm interested in the history and archaeology of California and the Near East. Religion in general, particularly mysticism, excites me. I also have very strong interests in Lovecraft studies, and occasionally publish in that field.

A list of my publications, most of which are online, is included in my LinkedIn page, linked below.

I'm always looking to make connections with others who have similar interests -- or who are just interesting -- so don't hesitate to contact me.

About my libraryI'm particularly interested in developing my Lovecraftiana, religion, archaeology, and Near Eastern studies collections, but my interests are varied and eclectic.

I've read bits and pieces of most of these books, and many I've read it cover to cover.

Those tagged "Humanities Writing Program" are used in the curriculum at the University of California, San Diego's Revelle College, which I TA'd for six years.

These are mostly the books I physically own (or owned -- a few rare exceptions may have gone off to friends and relatives). A few I've chosen to review are also listed. I've read and loved many besides these, including some of my favorite books, which are not here. Some of these books were hard sought-after and expensively bought, others I rescued from rubbish bins. Fringe scholarship amuses me, but I don't practice it or believe it. Ownership of a book is not necessarily an endorsement of its contents.

I'd be very interested in discussing these and other books with members here.
