I’m married (20 years!) with three kids, a dog, and two cats and we live among a tribe of beautiful people in the Lansing / East Lansing Michigan area. I spent the 90s trying to be a rock star and the aughts getting an M.A. in American Studies and a PhD in 20th Century Urban American History.
I am the Executive Director for H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences Online
, an independent, non-profit scholarly association that offers an open academic space for scholars, teachers, advanced students and related professionals. I began working with H-Net in 2013 as a Content Developer while finishing his PhD in U.S. History. I joined the organization as the Associate Director of Networks in October 2014 and became Interim Executive Director in January 2020. H-Net’s Executive Council named me the organization’s Executive Director in November 2022.
