Brief Bio: 

I teach eighteenth-century British literature and LGBTQ studies at California State University, Fresno. I enjoy hiking in the Sierra Nevada mountains, reading the good reads, eating the tasty victuals, and participating in Fresno's arts and culture scenes. I'm also DJ Prof on 90.7 KFSR. Check out my segment of Evening Eclectic on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-9:00 pm (Pacific).

Full Bio: 

I teach 18th-century British literature, LGBTQ literature and studies, Queer Theory, as well as a range of other literature courses in the English Department at California State University, Fresno. I have published articles on Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, William Beckford, and on the intersections of Sapphic erotics and economics in eighteenth-century fiction. With Caroline Gonda, I co-edited the collection Lesbian Dames: Sapphism in the Long Eighteenth Century. My current research examines sexual, gendered, and consumerist anxieties surrounding tea and tea drinking culture in eighteenth-century Britain. I also serve as Fresno State's Upper-Division Writing Exam Coordinator. For the past six years, I've been a Table Leader at the scoring sessions for the College Board's Advanced Placement Exam in Literature.
