My previous education includes a Bachelor's degree from Texas Lutheran University and a Master's degree in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. My research interests are politics, culture, organization(s), and, especially, the nature of political and civic engagement in contemporary times. I also thoroughly enjoy teaching and find it very rewarding when students are inspired by sociology.

If I'm not busy doing sociology, you'll most likely find me rock climbing in the beautiful Red River Gorge in Kentucky (see above) or playing basketball at the HPER.
