He received his B.A. magna cum laude in history from Rutgers University and his Ph.D. in American history from Temple University. He has been a college professor for 15 years, teaching both introductory and specialized upper-level courses in American and world history. His newest class in Columbia's Department of History explores the culture, history and life of Latinos/as.

He is the author of Aztlán Arizona (University of Arizona Press, 2014), while continuing to work on a new manuscript.
