Biography

I am a geographer, a political ecologist, a social theorist, a father, and last but not least, an educator. I have two degrees in Geography, but I also studied Anthropology and American Indian Studies. My most recent work and forthcoming papers relate to the practice of human territoriality as a contributing factor to conflicts surrounding environmental policy in the Bahamas. Prior to that I worked with a number of tribes in the American Southwest doing cultural resource consultation work. If you are from Tucson, you may even know as the sound engineer from some well known concert venues. My present research interests include thinking about the ways that Geography and the wider academy reproduce a form of white supremacy.
