Course Syllabi


Composition, 19th and 20th century British and American literature, film
B.A. Santa Clara University; M.A. University of Virginia

When I am not in the classroom (virtually or otherwise) or grading papers, I am usually busy with my family. When time allows, I try to read interesting books, watch strange films, listen to music (every kind but usually the loud variety), hike, swim, bike, ride and cook (but not simultaneously, and not necessarily in that order).
