I am a historian, editor, and the author of Dreamland: America’s Immigration Lottery in an Age of Restriction (University of North Carolina Press, 2023). From 2019-2021, I was a visiting assistant professor of history at La Salle University, where I taught courses on subjects like immigration and the 1990s, as well as courses in U.S., global, African American, and African history.

I am a Senior Editor at Made by History at the Washington Post, where I edit daily commentary and analysis from the nation’s leading historians. Made by History won the OAH’s 2022 Friend of History Award. I also lead trainings and workshops on op-ed writing. Pitch us at madebyhistory@washpost.com.
