A Brief Introduction

I’m a Community College History instructor, semi-geek,homebrewer, paranormal interestee.  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 as well as doing some part-time educational tech consulting and training for our Center for Teaching and Learning.

I have a BA in history from Hanover College and an MA in US History from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.

My first book, Extraterrestrials and the American Zeitgeist: Alien Contact Tales Since the 1950s will be published in 2013 by McFarland.  This site served as a work journal for the project and a reminder to future me why I have no recollection of the Summer of 2012…

  1. Hello Aaron,

    Seen you on the Kevin Smith Show. Great interview by the way. It was refreshing to hear a view point that is from a different angle than what is heard from the web today. I am an abductee and i never quite understood why my abductions and torchered sessions were always different from other experiencers i had found. So what you found is not always the case. there are others in the shadows that have total different view points than the ‘norm’ you hear.

    keep up the great work and thanks,

      Thanks for listening and writing! There are a vast, I think, array of types of experiences people have had–I’m not sure there’s a typical one.

    I just today listened to the podcast of Binnall of America which featured you as a guest. Great show! Very entertaining. It’s my hope that you will return many times. I sensed a very real rapport there. It made for a thoroughly enjoyable show. I don’t know what to make of all the topics you discussed, since I have always maintained a pretty skeptical attitude, but I guess that puts me about where you guys are. I do find unexplained phenomena fascinating, and find myself hoping they stay that way. Keeps things interesting.
