I am a researcher, teacher, and anti-violence advocate at the University of Wollongong studying Higher Education. My research is focused on men and masculinities, solutions-oriented approaches to preventing violence, and the teaching and learning of sociology.

Previously, I graduated from the University of North Carolina Asheville, majoring in both Sociology and Anthropology while interning at a Helpmate, a domestic violence shelter and Pisgah Legal Services, a free legal aid agency. Additionally, I edit the Open Education Sociology Dictionary available at SociologyDictionary.org.
