Overview

Drawing upon my experience as an adjunct professor in religious studies, I have been creating back-of-the-book indexes for nine years, with a focus on spiritual and theological texts. I also do remote contract work in online database indexing for Alexander Street Press, with an emphasis on religious archival material. While my graduate work focused on Eastern religions, my teaching experience was with world religions and religion in American history. I also index philosophical works for university presses and self-help/motivational books for independent authors and book designers.
