About Me

My teaching and research interests include Shakespeare and other early modern playwrights, dramatic literature, theater history and performance studies, and media and film studies. At Wingate University, I teach British literature and world literature surveys, first-year composition, desktop publishing, Shakespeare, Renaissance literature, film adaptation, and drama. I also serve as the Director of Wingate’s English-Speaking Union Shakespeare Competition for middle and high school students and the Director of Wingate’s Honors Program.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, spending time with friends, hanging out with my dog, and running.
