I teach all things geography at Antelope Valley College in Lancaster, California, USA. Much of my industry background has revolved around field research in both cultural and natural resource management as well as geographic information systems (GIS) implementation and management in those fields and in local government.
Graduate school rekindled an interest in human geography and the greater humanities, which I have been researching primarily in the field of mobilities and environmental studies. Most of my work so far has used a variety of methods to explore American car culture, environmental history, ideology, and the American West.
My current research interests revolve around critical environmentalism and the bridging of scientific knowledge with the lived experience those in the rural/urban interface of Los Angeles County.
