Teaching

I am currently an assistant professor of English and the director of the theatre program at Hood College in Frederick, MD. I teach courses in modern and contemporary poetry, creative writing, literary adaptation, digital media, film, and theatre.

I'm committed to helping students develop critical thinking skills via an interdisciplinary study of cultural objects within their social, historical, and political contexts.
