Welcome

Under Construction: Please pardon my site’s disrepair as I migrate it to a new platform.

I am an Associate Professor of Sociology at Queens College in the City University of New York. My specialties include the sociologies of media, marketing, personal finance, organizations, economic markets, and quantitative analysis. I am a faculty member in Queens College‚Äôs Program in Data Analytics & Applied Social Research and serve as co-Director of the Queens Podcast Lab.

This website serves as a catalog and repository of my content creation, and a platform for communicating with students and those who share my research, development, or creative interests.
