I am a writer, English professor, and popular music scholar at Tulane University in New Orleans, where I direct the New Orleans Center for the Gulf South. I spend my mornings writing in cafes whether at home or when traveling. On the road, I explore in the afternoons: it is one of my great pleasures to walk around unfamiliar cities and map them with my feet. I stop in the bakeries and bistros that catch my eye (or nose), as well as the bars or clubs that catch my ear (for music or conversation). I am a low-maintenance guest, content to read, research, or watch TV when home.
