My dissertation topic is the transnational diffusion of human trafficking policy. Through my research, I aim to assist practitioners helping marginalized people, such as victims and survivors of human trafficking, in achieving better, scientifically-informed policy outcomes. My current research has a quantitative focus.

I have eclectic scholarly interests and have also written at the intersections of commercial sexual exploitation, philosophy and theology, as well as on the historiography of antebellum reform.

With graduate degrees in political science, history, and theological studies, as well as traning and experience in secondary education, I have versatile teaching qualifications. I delight in teaching, and I am always seeking to improve my teaching craft.

As a colleague and work partner, I am committed to being a team player, ensuring everyone has a voice, and empowering my supervisors, colleagues, and those under my supervision in their own work. I always strive to listen and learn from others, but I am also able to take leadership if it is in the best interest of the organization. I seek to be kind, compassionate, honest, approachable, and faithful in my commitments.

Earlier careers include seven years as a civilian procurement official for the US Navy. I lived in the Dominican Republic from 2003 to 2015 where, for part of that time, I founded and ran a non-profit organization to help victims and survivors of commercial sexual exploitation and their families. My wife and I were also active in dog rescue there.

I currently serve the community in my work on the data working group for the Kentucky Human Trafficking Task Force.

I am also an artist and you can see some of my work here.
