I grew up in Virginia and Florida, and I received my B.A. in International Affairs and History from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA.  I also have a Masters in Middle Eastern History from George Mason University, and a Masters in Government from the University of Texas at Austin.  Before coming to the University of Texas, I worked for a number of years in Washington, DC for The Nixon Center (now the Center for the National Interest), a think tank.  You can download my C.V. here.
