Hello and welcome to my site!
I use this blog to write about historical film and the media along with observations and advice about postgraduate work. I’m a professor and full-time writer. I am available to write for you and to consult for television/film, books, exhibitions, etc. in any area of history for a fee. I have written for History Today and appeared on the BBC and Netflix’s Lost Pirate Kingdom to discuss pirates and their public executions. You can find more information about my research, publications, and media experience through the different tabs on this site.
I am a historian of early America and the Atlantic world with a PhD completed at King’s College London in 2017. My expertise is in legal history, piracy, state power, violence, print culture, and polite society. For more information about my academic work and interests, check out the “About” tab on this site.
