After earning my Ph.D. in English from the University of Washington, I took two years off to be a dad before returning to teaching. My professional focus is medieval literature, primarily 9th century Welsh-Latin texts. You may ask me about the Vita Alfredi at your peril! I’ve taught literature—from medieval to Shakespeare—and a variety of writing genres—creative, argumentative, and technical—at University of Washington, Seattle University, and Highline College. During my tenure as a part-time lecturer, I dove head-first into the world of school-age care to develop and run after-school enrichment in and around Seattle. Now, I have the awesome job of working with kids full-time and I couldn’t be more excited to show my passion and commitment to school-age care. While I’m not spending time with my family, skating, biking, and hiking, you can find me at the kitchen table, playing board games with friends.
