Hello! I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Abilene Christianity University. My research and teaching are focused on political theory. I write about constitutional theory, attending to the institutional implications of differing philosophical and religious foundations. I am teaching courses on American government, American political thought, and political science methodology. I also contribute essays to a number of publications for a broad audience about public affairs.

I graduated from Oklahoma Christian University with a BA in History Pre-law, obtained an MPP from the Pepperdine School of Public Policy, and earned a PhD in political science at Texas A&M University.

Feel free to reach out and connect with me!
