I am a Lecturer in the Program in Writing and Rhetoric at Stanford University, where I teach writing courses in the Immersion in the Arts: Living in Culture (ITALIC) program. My writing has appeared in publications including Theatre Journal, The Radical History Review, Theatre Survey, PAJ, and The Brooklyn Rail. Originally from Flatbush, Brooklyn, I now live in San Francisco.
I received my Ph.D in theatre with a focus on the sociology of culture from the CUNY Graduate Center in 2013. My current book project, "Drop Dead: Crisis and Performance in 1970s New York City," looks at performance, spatial inequities, and community identity during the 1975 fiscal crisis in New York.
I received my MFA in Dramatic Writing from the Tisch School of the Arts, New York University, and my BA in Theatre and Women's Studies from Dartmouth College.
Interests include urban studies & performance, austerity & the arts, sociology of culture, dramatic structure.
