About Me

I research, present, and publish on a variety of mid-19th century topics, focusing on United States history, western settlement, and the everyday lives affected by the sweeping changes in society during the 1830-1869 era. I teach hands-on workshops and interpretive development, and handle interpretive development for a local historical site (designing historical tours for school children).
