I’m an Associate Professor of Political Science at Saint Mary’s College, where I teach both introductory and upper-level courses in Political Thought, as well as courses on Religion and Politics and Human Rights. I also teach in the Writing Proficiency Program.

My current research interests are in ecumenical dialogue and the lessons it might provide for the conduct of political discourse in pluralistic societies. I am also very interested in the digital humanities. I’ve been a regular contributor to ProfHacker since the fall of 2009.

I spent my 2012-2013 sabbatical as a non-degree student in the Digital Humanities MA program at Loyola University Chicago.

On this site, you’ll find a professional portfolio (very much still under construction after a site crash in 2012), a blog, and whatever else I eventually decide to add. Though it should go without saying, I’ll say it anyway: I speak only for myself on this site, not for Saint Mary’s College. I’ll also note that I fairly often link to other sites or posts that I find interesting; the fact that I find them interesting does not necessarily mean I agree with them.
