I am currently an Assistant Professor of History at Waldorf University. I previously worked as an adjunct professor of History at Mid Michigan Community College and Central Michigan University. I completed my PhD in medieval history at Central Michigan University. I received my Bachelor's degree in Physics and Astronomy from Northern Arizona University and have Master's degrees in History from CMU and the University of Strathclyde in Scotland. I have won various awards for papers I have written and continue to present my research at academic conferences.

I grew up in California (in the San Francisco Bay Area) and went to college in Flagstaff, Arizona. Since I graduated in 2004 I have lived in Colorado, Arizona, Missouri, Minnesota, Michigan, Iowa and Scotland. I spent 9 years in Michigan and recently moved to Iowa. I am married and have 2 young sons.

At Waldorf I teach World and European history from the Ancient world to today. My specific field of study is Medieval Europe and the History of Science. As a graduate student at CMU I have taught several history courses as a teaching assistant including: Western Civilization I, Medieval History, American History, and History of the Middle East. In the Spring of 2013 I taught my own class on Western Civilization. I have attended numerous teaching seminars through the CMU Faculty Center for Innovative Teaching where I learned a number of teaching techniques that I have applied to the classes I taught. I also worked at an elementary school summer program when I was an undergraduate and worked for a small business that taught technology related after-school programs for elementary and middle school children after I graduated from NAU. While at NAU I designed an educational outreach program as vice-president of the Society of Physics Students by which we would go to local schools and teach one-hour hands-on science lessons for kids. I love teaching and and along with tutoring I have also volunteered as a student mentor through the Kids Hope USA program.

Classics

I have completed graduate level courses in Ancient history (Greece and Rome). I have studied Latin as a graduate student for 5 years. I have taught university classes on the History of Western Civilization which focused on the classical and medieval periods. These classes included leading discussions concerning the works of Homer, Plato, Aristotle and other classical authors. My current PhD dissertation in part looks at Roman and Medieval views on language and education. It also includes sections on classical philosophy and the history of science in the classical and medieval periods.
