I'm an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at Bridgewater College in Bridgewater, Virginia.  I am the advisor for the Department's minor in Crime and Justice. I am also the Vice-President of the Bridgewater College Philomathes Society. Some of my current off-campus responsibilities include being a Board Member for the Virginia Social Science Association, and the Secretary and Data Manager for the Harrisonburg-Rockingham County Reentry Council.

I routinely teach Principles of Sociology and the quantitative research methods series for the major in Sociology. I also teach several of the courses in the Crime and Justice minor including Adjudication & Corrections, World Justice Systems, and the Senior Practicum in Crime and Justice.

My professional interests include: community development, social cohesion and disorganization, crime and deviance; social networks; the cognition of social structure; the measurement of fundamental network properties, such as social distance and acquaintanceship volume; program evaluation, methodology and statistics.
