About me

I earned my doctorate in American history at UT Austin in 2013, under the direction of H.W. Brands. My scholarly interests include 20th century urban and environmental transformation in the American West, as well as the history of American consumerism. My graduate work focused on the growth and development of Denver, Colorado, with particular emphasis on the city's dynamic and changing relationships to its mountain and plains hinterlands. 

I am also a digital project editor and archivist at UT Austin's Dolph Briscoe Center for American History. My current projects include the William P. Clements Texas Papers digital archive. Clements served as Texas governor from 1978 to 1982, and again from 1986 to 1990.
