About David

I am a PhD candidate in history at the University of California, Irvine, and I will complete my dissertation this summer. Previously, I earned a Master of Arts from California State University, Northridge in 2007, and a Bachelor of Arts from the same in 2004.

I specialize in the cultural and environmental history of modern Britain, the history of food, science, technology, and medicine. My research right now is a cultural and environmental history of wheat, flour, and bread in Britain and the British empire from 1846 to 1914. I have taught American, European, and world history, and I currently teach Western Civilization at Laguna College of Art & Design. I also teach writing, and I have worked in UC Irvine's Humanities Core Course for the past four years. Humanities Core is a year-long sequence of double-load courses that combine introductions in literature, history, and philosophy with intensive writing instruction. It is required for all first-year Humanities majors, and is popular with students from other majors who want a more intensive training in writing.

I am looking for students who are interested in learning to think critically about their world and to communicate effectively. I can help students in all forms of social studies, humanities, geography, and writing, but only students who can help themselves.

I am a regular contributor to the world's largest forum for interaction between professional historians and the interested public. I also nurse unhealthy obsessions with the Los Angeles Kings and Tottenham Hotspur; Ducks fans and Arsenal supporters should know what they're getting into by working with me.
