About Me

I’m originally from Ohio, growing up in its Appalachian region in Southeast Ohio. I graduated from Ohio University with a degree in education (’05). After teaching high school for 4 years I returned to Ohio University and graduated with a master’s degree in political science (’12). Now, I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Oregon.

My wife Colleen O’Hare graduated from Ohio University with undergraduate degrees in Business Administration and Communication (’11) and holds a master’s degree from Clemson University in Communication (’13).

We currently live in Eugene, Oregon where we enjoy Oregon’s natural beauty and watching college football with our two cats, Henry and Oliver.
