I'm a brainy, energetic, dynamic young professor of English at the University of Wisconsin Madison (I specialize in Queer Theory/LGBT Literature). I'm wrapping up seven years as a Ph.D. candidate and postdoctoral fellow in Washington DC and headed out to the mid-west for a new chapter. My favorite movie is Thelma & Louise and I teach it almost every year. I'm also a comic book junky and am finishing revisions on a book about superhero comics and radical politics since WWII, which will be published by NYU Press later this year. As my friends can usually attest, my life motto is "doing it, living it, loving it"...and living large. Also, I'm a fantastic tenant, super organized and keep a spotless house (especially if it's yours!).
