Welcome to my site. I’m a professor at the University of Texas at Arlington, where I teach in the Department of Modern Languages. My current writing projects are in the history of popular culture, comparative literature, and contemporary American literature. I am interested in the ways that popular culture travels across borders, and the past and present of the American West. You can learn more about my scholarship by clicking on the writing tab above, or here. One of my hobbies is making pictures, you can see selected projects under the gallery tab or here.
