Me with the portrait of Machiavelli in the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence
I am a political theorist currently on sabbatical from academia. My academic research examines political skill in leadership and political practices in the History of Political Thought and in contemporary applications. I received my PhD in Political Theory from University of California, San Diego in 2017. I have taught at University of California, San Diego; Towson University; the Community College of Baltimore County; and University of Maryland Baltimore County. I also served as the Managing Editor (2017-2019) and Editorial Assistant (2012-2017) of The Adam Smith Review.
