I am an ancient historian, writer, and baker.

About me

Hailing first from the woods and hills of Vermont, I made my way to Brandeis University and then to the University of Missouri-Columbia where I completed my doctorate in Ancient History. In August 2021, I started a position as a professor of history at Truman State University in Kirksville, Mo.

When not teaching and researching, I am a baker, an avid reader, and indulge in a wide range of interests and hobbies, including playing and watching sports, writing, and playing board games.
