My current research interests include religion, business and entrepreneurship, culture and criminology. My present research agenda includes looking at the intersection of business and religion, specifically with regards to entrepreneurship, and understanding religious organizations, particularly the megachurch phenomenon. My thesis focused on examining the effects of cultural ideologies on religious behaviors.
