I knew from an early age that I wanted to study U.S. history, although it wasn’t until I got to college that I decided that I would be a historian. I earned a B.A. and M.A. from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, and my Ph.D. from Boston College. I have worked at IPFW since 2010.
Aside from studying the founders, I enjoy spending time with my wife and son doing almost anything at all. Having spent most of my life in Massachusetts, I am a die-hard fan of Boston sports teams, especially the Red Sox and Patriots. I am an avid reader and enjoy listening to unhip music and binge-watching TV shows.
