Prior to joining the faculty at Coastal, I taught at the University of Washington, Saint Anselm College, and Seattle University. I previously worked as a military analyst for the National Bureau of Asian Research in Seattle, WA, served as an officer in the US Army Reserve, and briefly taught high school in Williamsburg, Virginia.
I have a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Washington (fields: International Relations, Comparative Politics, and Theory), MAs in political science from UW and the University of Iowa, a MA Ed (Social Studies) from the College of William and Mary, and a BA in History from the College of William and Mary. In 1999-2000, I was a Ford Foundation Crossing Borders Fellow at the University of Iowa, an interdisciplinary fellowship that promoted connections across the social sciences and humanities.
My research and teaching interests include international security, intelligence analysis, strategy, military doctrine, revolutions and state failure, and social theory (broadly conceived). I have published in International Political Sociology, the International Studies Compendium, and Totalitarian Movements and Political Religions, as well as several book chapters. I am the editor (with Brent J. Steele) of Theory and Application of the “Generation” in International Relations and Politics (Palgrave, 2012).
