Steve is a PhD student in the UGA history department examining Anglo-American colonial relations during the eighteenth century. He is particularly interested in American views concerning the nature and types of corruption exhibited within the British imperial bureaucracy. His research focuses on policies of “salutary neglect” and evidence of debilitating, systemic flaws within the British imperial constitution.
History represents a second career for Steve. He received an undergraduate degree in business administration from the University of Virginia and worked for many years as a financial consultant for accounting and investment banking firms. He works as a teaching assistant in the department.
Steve has presented research at a conference hosted by the Texas A&M University. He is currently preparing a paper describing how British royal governors attempted to control vice and fraud among American colonists in the South.
