I am very happy to be teaching at MSA this year. During my career as a teacher, I have practiced in diverse locations, including Nairobi, Kenya; Middletown, CT; New York City; Adams, MA; Williamstown, MA and now at the base of Mount Snow. For the past five years I taught at Berkshire Arts & Technology Charter Public School in Berkshire County, specializing in AP English Literature and Language. As a professor, my areas of specialization include multicultural theatre, performance studies, and American studies. I live in Bennington, VT with my partner Nick, who teaches in the Music program at Bennington College; my two children Elsa and Tobias both of who attend Burr & Burton Academy in Manchester, VT and a very fat cat, Moonie.
