My research focuses on how urban issues develop over time.  I believe that we cannot solve today's problems if we do not understand how those problems evolved.  Therefore, history is very important to my work.  A lot of my work is based in the city of East St. Louis, Illinois.

I'm a collector.  I don't just study history--I like to hold it in my hands.  I love antique paper and ephemera.  Books live in every room of my house.  I am surrounded by bricks from obsolete places, metal artifacts from the industrial era, and miscellaneous stuff that other families pitched decades ago!
