Hi There!

I am an economic sociologist interested in world-historical and world-systemic social change, global inequalities, sport, popular culture, and many other things. Most of my work has focused broadly on changes in the global division of labor and their impact on the global distribution of wealth, status and power. Currently I am studying handmade bicycle builders and their position within the global bike trade. You can read more about this work on the project blog: Handbuilding Value.

I have taught at James Madison University since 2005, where I am now an Associate Professor and serve as the Program Coordinator for Sociology. I regularly teach Social Issues in a Global Context, Introduction to Developing Societies, Sociological Inquiry and a senior seminar on Markets, Capitalism and Crisis. Before too long I plan to teach a course on work and its alternatives.
