About Joseph Gaines

I am a Master’s level student in English with an undergraduate background in religious study. I currently work as an event photographer. I enjoy the creative nature of this job. It is regularly interpersonal work, and that challenge has given me an opportunity to develop important communication skills when encountering new faces. My general interests are literature, the historical development of ideas, religion - especially Christianity and literary/textual analysis of the Bible, the interaction of religion and psychology, and medicine.
