I’m an Associate 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). My outreach projects include serving as Trends Editor of Contexts (2014-2017), writing for public outreach sites like Contexts and TheSocietyPages.Org, and collaborating on a census of Saratoga Springs’ homeless population with Shelters of Saratoga.
