About Me

I am a PhD candidate in English at the University of Connecticut. My field is nineteenth-century British and American literature and my current project focuses on nineteenth-century literary representations of autodidacts.

A lover of the arts, I am fortunate to have worked with various arts organizations such as Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, MA and MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA.

I am a proud product of the Massachusetts state school system, holding a trifecta of degrees from Berkshire Community College, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, and Westfield State University.

My hobbies include long distance running, listening to podcasts, and watching and creating theatrical productions.
