I’m a Community College History instructor, semi-geek,homebrewer, and part-time paranormal buff. This site serves as a personal blog as well as a public repository for conference papers, teaching ideas, and anything else I deem useful.
I’m an instructor at Mott Community College, Flint Michigan, where I teach courses US, World, East Asian, American Military, and Medieval European history. I’ve also served as a part-time educational tech consulting and training for our Center for Teaching and Learning.
I’ve written some books- Extraterrestrials and the American Zeitgeist: Alien Contact Tales Since the 1950s (McFarland) and The Chaos Conundrum (RedStar) were both published in 2013. The Paranormal and the Paranoid: Conspiratorial Science Fiction Television (Rowman and Littlefield) will be published in mid 2015.
