My favorite part about teaching at Johnson is: Interacting with curious students who really want to understand world cultures.

In my classes, students can expect: To pursue important and wide-ranging subjects by means of excellent and varied resources.
My best advice to a new student in my program is: Figure out how courses within the program fit together and relate to the entire curriculum.
Because of my influence, I most want my students to become: Lifelong students of the world and its cultures, ancient and modern.
The myth-busting truth about my discipline I most want people to understand is: The study of anthropology, archaeology, and the religious traditions of the world produces many rewards and makes every day interesting.
A quote that influences how I live is: “Our real journey in life is interior; it is a matter of growth, deepening, and of an ever greater surrender to the creative action of love and grace in our hearts.” – Thomas Merton
