Who I Am and What I Like: I like watching movies, listening to music, and reading good books across all genres. I’m always on the lookout for a good baking recipe. I’m a presidential/historical biography nerd; I can’t handle horror movies but I love Stephen King books. I also spend a lot of time thinking about teaching and education. I’m a writer and poet. I am not perfect, nor do I aspire to be.

Where, When and How I Work: I hold Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in American Studies. I have taught courses in multiculturalism, popular culture, fine arts, literature, and media to a wide variety of student populations. I have currently come to rest teaching English at a wonderful single-sex independent school, which I really enjoy, and where I think a lot about best practices for teaching with technology. I also work as a freelance writer and have published poetry, essays, reviews, and features at a variety of print and online publications.
