I received my PhD in English from the University of New Brunswick in 2013, my MA in Book History from the University of Toronto in 2003, and my BFA in Film Production from York University 2002.
I also work as the Canadian Association for Theatre Research membership coordinator and elected representative for Ontario. I recently chaired CATR's 2012 conference at the University of Waterloo and co-chaired the 2014 conference at Brock University.
In my spare time I love playing board games, fantasy football, hot yoga, and vegetarian cuisine.
My current research looks at the cultural history of identity performances within contemporary film, theatre, sports, and video games. I recently co-edited a special topics issue of Canadian Theatre Review on “Digital Performance” (Summer 2014) and will be editing a new issue on “Sports and Theatre” in 2015. I am also finishing my first book called Queer Shakespeare in Canada: Adaptations and Performances of Nationalisms and Sexualities for publication next year.
