Me with the portrait of Machiavelli in the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence
I am an Adjunct Professor at Towson University and the Community College of Baltimore County; and a Visiting Scholar in the Political Science Department at Johns Hopkins University. My 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 the University of California, San Diego in 2017. Previously, I served as the Managing Editor (2017-2019) and Editorial Assistant (2012-2017) of The Adam Smith Review.
