I am an independent researcher, speaker, and writer. For the past six years, I have studied Iowa residents who left that state and served the Confederacy.
During the season, I work at Living History Farms as a historical interpreter. In the off-season, I work as a substitute teacher. I am also on the Humanities Iowa Speakers Bureau. My topics are “Iowans who Fought Against the Union” and “Josiah Bushnell Grinnell and the Iowa Underground Railroad.”
My articles have appeared in Iowa Heritage Illustrated, Iowa History Journal, Illinois Magazine, and local newspapers in both states.
