Bio

I grew up near Austin, TX, and studied physics and math as an undergraduate at Rice University. My research interests then shifted from the natural world to the social, and I earned my PhD in sociology at the University of California, Berkeley. I am now at Colorado State University where I do research and teach as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology.

Before graduate school my jobs included serving as a campus minister, tuning lasers at a national laboratory, and collecting shopping carts in a Home Depot parking lot. I am married to Michelle and we have two boys, Patterson and Gideon. I enjoy running (sometimes really, really far) and climbing (sport, trad, alpine… everything but bouldering). I sporadically document these adventures on Instagram and track them on Strava.
