I’m Assistant Professor of Sociology at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. I teach courses on mass media, political sociology, sociology of sport, as well as research methods and social statistics. Most of my research focuses on how the state, the market, and civil society shape the forms of journalism available to the public (see my curriculum vitae). Most recently, I have been exploring how new digital news sites may be reshaping journalism.

I’m also editor of the Trends section of Contexts magazine and have written a number of articles for public outreach outlets including Contexts and The Society Pages.

  • A colleague emailed me today: "Life in America these days reminds me of ." Spot on.
  • Local news: "Legislators are trying to get robots to follow the same rules we do." The end is nigh.
  • Wasn't tortured long and got a good result. Counting today as a win.
