I am a writer, editor, and teacher.
I went to school at Temple University and University of Virginia. In addition to working as an instructor at Temple, UVa, Westminster Choir College, and Rowan University, I’ve been an editor for iaspm-us.net and a research intern at Library of Congress.
My writing has appeared a number of places, including Popular Music & Society, Popular Music, In the Muse, Jacobin, and iaspm-us.net.
See Writing and Blog for samples of my work.
