I am a Member of the Faculty in the Master of Public Administration Program at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, USA, and received my PhD in Public Policy and Political Science from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor. My academic interests are primarily in security issues, including empirical international relations and U.S. homeland security policy.


I grew up in Iowa, but spent the first semester of my Bates College freshman year in Tokyo, Japan. This gave me a taste for travel, my main interest, along with hiking and camping.

These are a few of my favorite places so far.
