Welcome to my once-again revamped website.
Websites are funny things. Good ones, like people, evolve over time. This site is no exception; I have owned this domain since about 1998, and in that time the site has been a bit of everything.
Now it’s a site about my public speaking. This is something near and dear to my heart. I’ve been a historian for as long as I can remember, and I’ve sometimes been asked to speak about it. Last week I did a speech for the Joel Lane House, and people genuinely seemed to enjoy it. I’ve been booked for a few more speaking engagements this year, and I decided to give this a whirl.
As an avid historian, collector and interpreter of North Carolina’s material culture, I’ll be writing here about my finds on a regular basis.
