Since December 2013, I have worked in San Francisco as a consultant with the Environmental Solutions Group of FTI Consulting. Recently I was promoted to Director. Previously I had worked 13 years as an independent historical consultant and adjunct professor.

I continue to research and write. My publications include essays in American Sociological Review, Business History Review, Diplomatic History, Financial History Review, Journal of American-East Asian Relations, Journal of Urban History, Presidential Studies Quarterly, and several scholarly collections, among them, The History of Transnational Tax Reform: The Shoup Mission to Japan, edited by my adviser, W. Elliot Brownlee, and A Companion to Ronald Reagan, edited by fellow UCSB PhD grad, Andrew L. Johns. I am the author of A Better Way to Build: A History of the Pankow Companies (Purdue University Press, 2013). Recently, I completed a book manuscript, Oil and Urbanization: The Career of Ralph Bramel Lloyd.
