Revolution is Relative

Change is a matter of perspective and history.

I'm a historian who helps communities and organizations listen to diverse voices from the past, so that we better understand our differences and connections today.

More about my approach

Strategy & Curation

I’ve been helping communities and organizations large and small consider multiple perspectives on change for more than twenty years, through compelling content as well as strategic planning. Let’s talk!

All my work builds on broad methodological expertise. From the visual and material to a wide range of documentary evidence, we’ll leave no stone unturned as we explore an inclusive array of views and sources.

Events & Media Appearances

I maintain an active schedule of media appearances as well as virtual and in-person public talks, discussions, and workshops. Most focus on pre-1860 U.S. history, the history of popular culture, and interpretive methods. Check out past and upcoming events by clicking below.
