About Me

I am a writer, professor, and researcher. My PhD from New York University is in English Literature, with a focus on English Romanticism and the related areas of Romantic Orientalism, Medievalism, and the Gothic. In my 20+ year career as a Community College English professor I have been able to branch out into a myriad of other areas of study, from the classics of Ancient Greece to Contemporary Global literature and much in between.

I am also very interested in memoir writing, and in particular, literacy narratives in which writers map out their journey as readers, learners, and citizens.
