About Me

I’m currently based in Massachusetts, although I’m a British/US citizen with expertise in the larger Atlantic world including Maritime Canada and Ireland. Happy to speak on Im/migration history, genealogy, Catholicism, LGBTQ+ British Catholics, and London from the 19th c onwards.

Outside of teaching, I have worked in Public history, most recently in the Royal Household at Buckingham Palace and Marble House/The Breakers for the Preservation Society of Newport County.
