Bio

I grew up near Austin, Texas. As an undergraduate, I studied physics and math at Rice University. My research interests shifted from the natural world to the social, and I completed graduate degrees 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 Deport parking lot. I am married to Michelle and we have two boys, Patterson and Gideon. I enjoy trail running, rock climbing, and learning new mountain sports. I sometimes document these adventures on Instagram and track them on Strava and Mountain Project.
