As a historical consultant, with more than three decades of experience as a practicing historian, I am able to provide a variety of services. In addition to having taught at the university level, I’ve worked for history museums, a for-profit heritage marketing firm, and I’ve provided historical research and writing on projects for businesses, museums, local governments, and organizations in the non-profit sector.

I hold a Ph.D. in U.S. History with a specialty in the history of the American South. I'm a nationally recognized scholar on the issue of Confederate memorialization and the author of four books, including most recently No Common Ground: Confederate Monuments and the Ongoing Fight for Racial Justice (2021). My public writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, TIME, Smithsonian Magazine, Publishers Weekly, and CNN.
