His academic training focused on Material Culture and Museum Studies, and he received his M.A. in Public History from Texas State University in 2015. He has worked and spoken at institutions across the nation, including: Colonial Williamsburg, The Henry Ford, and The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Bayou Bend.
