“I will always be a historian. I’ve spent so many years studying the subject and can’t just turn it off.

“Everywhere I go something reminds me of history. I rant about it on long drives and nudge it into my everyday conversations. So this blog is really just a way for me to stay in touch with what I love.”



I’m glad you’ve stumbled on my website. As these quotes from my first blog post show, the reason I’m here is because I just love learning, writing, and talking about history. Although I no longer work as a historian professionally, it’s still a part of me and I love to share it.

If you have even a small interest in history, this is the right place for you! I update regularly on strange historical events, travel to historic sites, and comments on the news with historical background. Basically I use history as a lens to understand the world better. I hope you’ll join me in that mission.
