I have lived in Bucks County, Solebury in particular, for most of my life. Although I loved my sojourns in Philadelphia, NYC, Wyoming, and Washington D.C., Solebury has always been my home base. After completing my M.A. in American Studies at the University of Wyoming, I taught history for four years at The Pennington School in New Jersey. In 1999, I decided to pursue a doctorate in American history and landed at Lehigh University. At Lehigh, I focused on modern American cultural history. My dissertation investigated the relationship between natural foods and the 1960s cultural revolution. After Lehigh I taught at Allegheny College in western PA for one year and returned to Bucks to join the faculty at BCCC. I have been teaching history and humanities at BUCKS since 2006.
