I'm the Resident Librarian at the Marriott Library. I provide assistance in English, Ethnic Studies, and Gender Studies. Within English, my specialty areas are modern and postmodern literary theory, modern and postmodern prose and poetry, 19th century British supernatural prose and poetry, homosexuality in literature, and Medieval and Renaissance literature. Authors I can especially help you with are James Joyce and the Pearl Poet. Outside of the "Western Canon," I am also familiar with Japanese and German literature. Outside of English, I have a background in music, language, and film.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in English from the College of William & Mary and my Master of Science in Library & Information Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
