Originally hailing from the metro Detroit area, I studied Irish history at Loyola University Chicago, completing a PhD on Ireland's memory and commemoration of the First World War.
At present I reside in Denver, Colorado and continue to pursue various aspects of Irish history. I am also an active member of the American Conference for Irish Studies.
