  Welcome to my homepage

After spending about a decade
living and teaching in Manhattan and Brooklyn, I am happy to now call Jersey City home.  I joined the faculty of NJCU in the fall of 2009, after  completing  a joint postdoctoral fellowship at the New School and New-York Historical Society.  As a history professor at NJCU, I have written walking tours of Jersey City, which I offer at least once every semester.  In my research, I explore the construction and craft history of Broadway from the early twentieth century to the 1990s.  This research will soon appear in my book, Blue-Collar Broadway: The Craft and Industry of American Theater, under contract with the University of Pennsylvania Press.  It should be in print by 2012.
