About Me

I am a historian (PhD, Penn State, 2016) specializing in the intersection of politics and religion in twentieth century America. My work also draws from media studies, public choice economics, gender studies, and social movement theory. The Radio Right, my book about the government censorship campaign against conservative radio broadcasters in the 1960s, will be published by Oxford University Press in April 2020.

I have taught multiple courses at Penn State, both on campus and online, and I have worked as an adjunct at Princeton University. In 2017-2018 I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Baylor University Institute for Studies of Religion. I am currently the Editor for Tech and Innovation at Libertarianism.org, an outreach of the Cato Institute, for which I run a regular column and also host a podcast on emerging technology called Building Tomorrow.
