Curriculum Designer, Digital Humanist, Writer with Exceptional Visual and Data 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 ’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 then again in 2023, I received funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to produce a proof-of-concept anthology application; I was awarded the Virginia Foundation for Independent Colleges Harris award in Instructional Technology for 2019. I also served for 5 years as a digital humanities editor for ABO: An Interactive Journal for Women in the Arts, 1660-1830, and about 7 years as the Web and Publications Editor for the Virginia Humanities Conference.

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

Today, I am seeking new opportunities in project management, data storytelling, content development, or curriculum design that makes use of my wide-ranging skillset.
