Hello, and welcome to my website. I am a graduate student in international affairs and a university teaching assistant. My research interests include US and Ibero-American foreign policy, comparative authoritarianism, comparative democratization, democratic backsliding, and the future of the US-led liberal international order. I previously worked in the technology sector for 16 years, with my most recent position being senior manager for quality engineering at a software company. I am a veteran of the United States Army and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
