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 cat Walter, cycling, travel, puns, good drinks, good food, and, occasionally, bad food.


In Spring 2019, my formerly top-100 university announced plans to significantly downgrade its academic mission. I encourage you to visit TUplan.org to learn more.
