I am a PhD candidate in sociocultural anthropology at the University of Arizona. I see my dissertation as contributing to two major fields: the anthropology of prison and the anthropology of masculinity. I recently completed 15 months of ethnographic fieldwork with prisoners who fight wildfires, examining the meanings of skilled labor for incarcerated men. I utilize a mixed-methods approach, with photography being a central component to my ethnographic technique. I have designed and implemented two individual research projects and worked for four years with the Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology. In addition to being a Teaching Assistant for three years, I have been an Instructor of Record twice. Once, for a 160 person introductory course on race and the American dream, and the second time for a 20 person undergraduate/graduate seminar on gender and social identity. You will find more detailed information about my academic work, community engagements, and personal ethos throughout the website.
