Professional Bio

Joined the faculty as Associate Teaching Professor of English January 2022, and currently teach ENGL 15 and 15A.

Before arrival at Penn State, served at Virginia Commonwealth University (Richmond, VA) as a teaching professor in the University College's Department of Focused Inquiry since it inception in 2007.

I'm a teacher first and foremost, but have engaged in scholarship in 20th-century American and Southern literature, Scottish literature, popular culture, and Teaching & Learning.

Outside of work, I enjoy playing guitar, fiddle, & tenor banjo: mostly blues and Irish/Scottish folk. Other pastimes: fly fishing, bicycling, hiking, and golf.
