When I'm not working, I'm typically chasing down my toddler or coaxing my youngest to sleep. My wife and I like to hike when we can, and I enjoy watching the Houston Astros (occasionally) win.
Me, my wife (Sam), my kids (Liam and Annemarie):
I was born in southern California. I graduated from high school in southeast Texas. I attended college in central Pennsylvania, where I majored in political science and played on the baseball team.

I am currently a visiting scholar in the Department of Politics at Princeton University.
