I am an Historian living in Washington, DC. I completed graduate and undergraduate work in American History at the College of William and Mary and Washington and Lee University, respectively. At William and Mary, my Masters thesis employed oral histories to describe school integration in Roanoke, Virginia. I’m also a PhD student at George Mason University, studying 20th Century American History and Digital History. My dissertation-in-progress explores four case studies of technology developed by the Petroleum Industry and the Federal government (public-private Partnerships) during World War II and the Cold War. These include catalytic cracking, synthetic rubber, fracking techniques, and synthetic fuels.

I am a Senior Research Associate at Morgan Angel and Associates where I conduct history, often driven by current day litigation. In my free time, I bike and brew historical beer.
