I received my PhD in Theatre from CUNY Graduate Center. My dissertation explored race, citizenship, and US Civil War memories on the postbellum stage. My work has been published in Theatre History Studies, Journal of American Drama and Theatre, and Theatre Journal (co-author), as well as other places (see the publications page for a complete list). I have also presented several times at the national conferences for ASTR and ATHE, among others. Other research/teaching interests include speculative works (theatre, literature, and film/TV). I’m currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing at City College, CUNY.
Prior to my current position, I worked as an adjunct and Writing Fellow at LaGuardia. As a Writing Fellow I advised and trained faculty from other disciplines to incorporate critical thinking and writing opportunities in the college classroom. I also devised and taught a variety of theatre courses at the College of Staten Island as a Graduate Teaching Fellow.
I live in New York City with my rescue pup.
