I was born in Wisconsin and have lived most of my life in the Washington DC area and New England.
I live in Maine and am an instructor in the Public Service & Social Sciences Department at Central Maine Community College.
I enjoy reading, writing, traveling, popular culture, art, technology and history.
I have been a Fulbright Scholar in Denmark and Japan, a candidate for state representative in New Hampshire, a policy analyst with the Michigan State Senate, newspaper columnist in Maine, and a
research assistant for Meet the Press in Washington, DC. I have been teaching political science for over thirty-five years.
