I am a recent PhD graduate from the University of Cambridge in the UK. I'm originally American, and have returned to the Midwest. My hope is to find an academic position where I can pursue my passion for the ancient world, and inspire students to love it too. I am big believer in the idea that the ancient world is still relevant to our world today, and I want to show students how many lessons we can learn from ancient history!
I specialise in Latin literature, but have extensive experience in both Greek and Latin, as well as a strong knowledge of ancient history and culture. I also write academic papers on the ancient world depicted in modern comic books. I love classics and comics, and even produce my own webcomic version of Ovid's Metamorphoses in my spare time.
Like the Romans, I love the outdoors and nature. When I've not got my nose buried in a book or comic, you'll often find me hiking in the woods. When the weather's not good for hiking, I go exploring in Minecraft instead.
