I am Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Tulsa, and the author of Political Advocacy and Its Interested Citizens. My research interests include political advocacy, political representation, democratic theory, LGBTQ politics, and American political development. My personal interests include my pets Walter (at left below) and Gertie (a dog not shown), travel, puns, listening to podcasts, updating my website once every five years, good drinks, good food, and, occasionally, bad food.


I currently serve as president of my institution’s chapter of the AAUP.
