Thanks for visiting. On these pages, you will find my theology blog, a link to some tools that I developed while studying French and Hindi tools, some short stories, my family history, and a gallery containing some of my photos
But, since you're visiting, you may want to know a little about me. For a detailed picture, have a look at my CV but, here is my bio in brief:
I am currently in the dissertation phase of a Ph.D. program at Drew University where I am studying anthropology of religion. Before beginning studies at Drew, I obtained a Master of Arts in Theological Studies from Claremont School of Theology.
Prior to resuming my studies in 2003, I served for ten years as a database analyst for Amgen, a global biotechnology company.
My academic interests include comparative theology, Jainism, and Hinduism. I am a founding member of the Ventura County Interfaith Community, a member of Campus Interfaith, and I am a member of the Program Group on Ecumenical and Interreligious Concerns at the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles.
I have done fieldwork amongst Jains in the United States as well in India in conjunction with the 2005 and 2009 International Summer School for Jain Studies.
