I’m an Associate Professor of Sociology at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY where I teach courses on mass media, political sociology, sociology of sport, and social statistics. My research interests include how media, sport, and politics intersect (see my curriculum vitae). With Stephen Barnard (St. Lawrence University), I’m the author of All Media Are Social (2020), an introduction to media sociology for students and general readers alike. During 2020-21, I am serving as Chair of the Communication, Information, Technology, and Media Sociology (CITAMS) section of the American Sociological Association (ASA).
