I write about social movements, power, and political violence.

My book, Nixon’s War at Home: The FBI, Leftist Guerrillas, and the Origins of Counterterrorism, was published in September 2021 by  University of North Carolina Press (Justice, Power, and Politics series). You can order a copy here.

I also co-edited, Science for the People: Documents from America’s Movement of Radical Scientists (University of Massachusetts Press, 2018), and my writing has appeared in outlets such as Jacobin, Washington Post, Radical History Review, and The Sixties.

I’m a Visiting Assistant Professor of history at Western Washington University, where I teach courses on America since 1865, History of the Pacific Northwest, The United States and International Terrorism, and The United States in the Cold War.

I also freelance as a writer, editor, and historical consultant. Please contact me for more information.

I hold a PhD in history from the University of Massachusetts Amherst (2016), and a mediation certificate from the Social Justice Mediation Institute, Amherst, Massachusetts (2013). My teaching experience spans more than eleven years at Western Washington University and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

I live in Bellingham, Washington, USA, on the traditional territory of the Lummi and Nooksack Coast Salish peoples. I use he/him pronouns. Thank you for exploring my website.
