About

Welcome to my blog & digital CV/teaching portfolio. I am an Associate Professor of English at LaGuardia Community College, City University of New York.

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.

I live in New York City with my rescue pup.
