As an assistant professor in the Department of History and Political Science at Ashland University (Ashland, OH), I teach both sections of the U.S. History survey as well as upper-level courses primarily in Early American History.  In 2008 I completed a Ph.D. at the University of Kentucky.  My dissertation and current research interests focus on Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and U.S. Relations with Great Britain after the American Revolution.  I am also a lifelong supporter of the Pittsburgh Steelers.  My wife and I reside in Ashland with our eleven-year-old beagle.
