Thanks for stopping by my website!


I'm a historian and sometime journalist who is interested in politics and power. My first book was about finance and infrastructure in early America, and I'm working on a new book about Aaron Burr and corruption.


I'm also the director of the Honors College at Rutgers University-Newark, where I try to create opportunities for students and faculty to connect in engaging, interdisciplinary courses, research labs, and intellectually-grounded projects that bridge campus and the region I've called home for my entire life. 

You can learn more about my work here at this site, and more about the Honors College and my work in higher education at our homepage.

I hope you'll read my work and get in touch!
