About

Digital Humanist, Data Analyst, Writer, Researcher with Exceptional Visual Skills

Once upon a time, I wanted to be a sculptor or a computer programmer. I put my first desktop computer together from parts in the late 90s. In 2005, I finished my PhD in Literature & Language at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Since 2006, I’ve been teaching writing, literature, critical theory, and digital narrative at Marymount University in Arlington, VA.

I have published on Early Modern performance art, popular theater in the 18th century, horror film, and digital pedagogy. In 2018, and with collaborators from The University of Virginia, I received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to produce a proof-of-concept anthology application, and most recently, I was awarded the 2019 Virginia Foundation for Independent Colleges Harris award in Instructional Technology. I also serve as a digital humanities editor for ABO: An Interactive Journal for Women in the Arts, 1660-1830.

In 2021, I began an MPS degree in Data Analytics and Visualization at Maryland Institute, College of Art, which I will complete in Spring of 2022.

Today, I am seeking new opportunities in the public sector or in higher education technology that makes use of my wide-ranging skillset.
