He is currently involved in two major research projects. The first is an oral history of The Farm, an intentional community in Summertown, Tennessee begun in the early seventies by a group of hippies that originated in the San Francisco Bay Area, and which is still thriving today. His other project is a biographical study of Harry S. Truman's post-presidency.

He enjoys running, biking, reading and traveling. He and his wife Cathie have two sons (Jamie and Michael) and a daughter (Kimberly).
