About Me

I am a historian, an instructor, a learner, a musician, a gardener, a cook, a voracious reader, and a technology nerd. At CU, I have the tremendous good fortune to hold the position of Teaching Associate Professor in the Stories and Societies Residential Academic Program (RAP) in Sewall Hall as well as to teach in the Department of History.
