I am an M.A. student focusing on modern Spanish history, following a career in financial management and consulting. I have completed all required classwork. My thesis-in-progress examines British and American press and diplomatic receptions and presentations of the 1923 coup and six-year dictatorship of Miguel Primo de Rivera in Spain. I presented “The Iron Surgeon Through Anglo-American Eyes: How Perceptions of Spaniards Rendered Primo de Rivera’s Dictatorship Acceptable” to the 2020 Northeast Ohio History Graduate Student Symposium. I have served as teaching graduate assistant in courses addressing early world history and the Holocaust. I devote my free time to my wife of 40 years, Christine, and to reading and cycling.
