I'm an Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Sociology at Bridgewater College in Bridgewater, Virginia.  I am also the advisor for the Department's minor in Crime and Justice. I have served on the Board of the Virginia Social Science Association.  I am currently a Board Member of the Gemeinschaft Home, and a member of the executive committee of the Harrisonburg-Rockingham & Page County Reentry Council.

I routinely teach Sociological Imagination 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 Criminology, 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.
