this is me

I am an author and historian, writing about Native California, Indigenous sovereignty, settler colonialism, and the American West. I have a deep interest in aesthetics, critical cartography, and the visual design of information. I teach in the history department at Guilford College.

 

In what seems like a previous life, I taught high school social studies for a number of years with the L.A. Unified School District.
