I currently live in downtown Salt Lake City with my partner. I completed two back to back masters’ programs, one in sociology and the other in anthropology and taught courses at the college level for both subjects. I also gave presentations about polyamory to poly/swinger/kink communities and at a conference about polyamory called RelateCon. Currently, my full-time job is social work geared toward helping vulnerable adults.
Three years ago I began working on Catch and Release: How I Used Science to Hack My Love Life where I use my skills as a researcher of sociology and anthropology to write a review of different relationship patterns throughout human history; as well as, a summary of some of the leading current research on relationships. Intermingled throughout the science is the story of my journey to polyamory. My goal is to explain how cultural pressures and religious indoctrination have created the current mainstream monogamous model that is so prevalent in today’s society and offer an alternative.
When I'm not writing or working, I enjoy reading fantasy novels, drinking the beer my partner brews, and wandering in the mountains when the weather is nice.
