General Background
I earned my Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Nebraska at Kearney. I worked as an historian with Making History, an Omaha consulting firm, for two years. In this position, I worked with historical societies, corporations, and individuals to plan and design archives, create and install museum exhibits, and research and write personal and group histories. Our focus at Making History was to share history with everyday people instead of limiting our work to scholars. In 2008, I worked at Bellevue University as a graduate admissions counselor and graduate academic advisor through December 2012. I earned my Master of Arts in Leadership from Bellevue in January 2010, completing a thesis on coercive leadership in Southeast Asia (focusing on Mao, Pol Pot, and Ho Chi Minh). I have taught classes in American History, Western Civilizations, Research Methods, and Leadership. I earned a Master of Arts in History from the University of Memphis in 2015; I completed my thesis "Hierarchy and Exclusion: The Construction and Maintenance of Order in First-Generation Puritan Massachusetts, 1630-1660," the first chapter of which won the Major L. Wilson History Graduate Paper Award for best graduate paper in History for the 2014-5 academic year. I recently completed a biographical entry on John Clarke for the upcoming Shaping the New World, a multi-volume history of Colonial America. My other areas of interest are The American South, Modern American History and Intellectual History. I am married with four children; I write, record and perform music; and I have a deep appreciation for baseball and Jazz music.
