I received my Ph.D. in English Literature and Creative Writing from SUNY Binghamton, and have since sailed my ship in a few different areas of the world, including Creative Writing, Gender and Sexuality Studies, American Realism and the Novel, and Popular Culture (Games and Science-fiction). On the way there I took my hat off to a number of influential writers including Henry James, Thomas Hardy, and Milan Kundera. I’ve published critical work in Reconstruction: Studies in Contemporary Culture, Transformative Works and Cultures, and a few film, food, book and music reviews. My creative writing has happily landed in a dozen journals and anthologies including Diagram. My free time is mostly taken up revising a novel titled World Without End, set on the island of Manhattan in 1982, and continuing my unfathomable odyssey towards all things Victorian.

(If you noticed the water body theme here, you would be a good English major.)
