This site serves as a hub for my professional presence on the web. I’m currently an assistant professor of History at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. In 2012, I completed my doctorate in American History at at the University of California, Davis.
My research examines the relationship between the District of Columbia and the federal government in the early republic period and the effects of that relationship on the development of the national capital. In 2018, I published a book about early Washington called George Washington’s Washington: Visions for the National Capital in Early Republic America.
In the classroom at TAMU-CC, I teach both halves of the United States history survey as well as courses about Ancient History, Urban History, and Early Republic America.
