Originally from Littleton, Colorado I received my BA in sociology and history from the University of Denver in 2003. Although I continue to enjoy topics in history, my current interests in sociology include deviance, sexuality, and social psychology. I also enjoyed teaching Deviant Behavior and Social Control (S320) at Indiana University from 2005-2009 and Introduction to Social Psychology (S2462) at the University of Colorado Denver in the spring of 2010. At present, I am back in Colorado and am working on my dissertation regarding male strippers. In this research, I examine how exotic dancing influences the self-concepts of male strippers and the ways in which they negotiate their identities while being employed in a stigmatizing occupation. Currently, I am teaching Introduction to Sociology (S1001) at the University of Colorado Denver.
