About Me
Grandpa and piano.png

I have been an English professor since 2009. I have taught writing, literature, film, and gender studies from the developmental level to the graduate level in traditional, hybrid, and online formats.


My specialties include American women writers, Civil War literature, and twenty-first-century American literature. I am an expert on teaching online and teaching with open educational resources (OER).


I am the author of a book, journal articles, book chapters, and hundreds of reviews, features, and essays on dance, performing arts, film, and culture.


I have loved music since childhood, as you can see. Here I am playing a toy piano with my grandfather, who worked for a company that stocked jukeboxes with 7" vinyl singles.
