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 spending time together and with our son, Connor. We also enjoy Oregon’s natural beauty and watching college football with our two cats, Henry and Oliver.
