I am a historian of Early America, the presidency, and the government – especially the president’s cabinet. I share my research by writing everything from op-eds to books, speaking on podcasts and other media, and teaching every kind of audience. On this site, you’ll learn more about me and my work. 

You can also sign up HERE for my monthly history newsletter, “A Spot of Parchment.” Each month, I share unique content, my favorite writing tips, upcoming events, links to podcasts and posts, and more!

Please don’t hesitate to email me with questions or comments.

Thank you for visiting!
