I am a writer and educator based in Los Angeles, California. 
Since 2001, I’ve been a professor in the California State University System, the largest four-year university system in the United States.
 
In 2005, I moved from Cal Poly Pomona to CSUN, where I'm honored to hold the Whitsett Professorship in California History. I teach classes on the history of the United States, California, and Los Angeles.
