About Me

I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science and Pre-Law Advisor at University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) in San Antonio, TX.  My research and teaching subfields of interest are Public Law (Law & Courts) and American Politics.

Prior to coming to UIW, I served in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard, attaining the rank of Sergeant and completing two tours of Iraq (Ramadi, 2005-2006 and Tallil, 2009).  Between deployments, I completed a BA in Political Science at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.  I completed the PhD in Political Science at the Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs of Syracuse University in May 2017.
