About the Site
Hi, my name’s Richard. This is a half-hearted attempt at a me-centered page by a not exactly me-centered person. At the top you’ll find links to my work in varying capacities—”writer,” “scholar,” and “solver.” The blog posts that will appear from time to time will highlight my latest ventures, from recent publications to new syllabuses to the latest and greatest from the journal Ledger, for which I serve as the Deputy Managing Editor. There’s even a link to contact me by means arcane and, I think, PHP-related. I hope you like what you see.
A freelance writer, mercenary academic, and problem-solver-for-hire, I’m also the owner of precisely one cat. I recently finished a PhD in English at Boston College, where I wrote about remix theory and medieval literature. My day job at this point is as the Deputy Managing Editor of Ledger, the first peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the study of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, hosted at the University of Pittsburgh. My first novel, Mouse, was be published last year by Prospective Press, and I’ve got a couple of other things in the pipeline I can’t wait to share with you all (when the time comes).
