20160615_142359Welcome! I am a historian of Latin America and the Caribbean who specializes in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Haiti. My work focuses on collective memory, national identity, and print culture. Please see the Research and Publications tab for more details, including free access to my prize-winning 2017 article on nineteenth-century Haitian histories of the Haitian Revolution.

In 2018-19, I was a finalist for the Hiett Humanities Prize.

Currently, I teach 10th grade English at the Bosque School in Albuquerque, NM. Previously, I was a faculty member in the History, Philosophy, and Social Sciences (HPSS) department at the University of Montana Western. I taught courses on Latin American, Caribbean, and U.S. history; Atlantic World slavery; Oral History; and historical methods. My teaching portfolio includes many examples from these courses.

I also serve as an editor for the scholarly blog, Age of Revolutions and am a member of the Oral History Association’s International Committee.
