I teach a variety of courses in Greek and Latin language and literature. I have studied in Athens and Rome, worked on an archaeological survey in Greece, and traveled extensively in the Mediterranean, especially Egypt. My publications, scholarly and literary, include original poetry, a textbook on Alexander the Great, and research in Hellenistic and Greek lyric poetry. Most recently, I have begun teaching and working in literary translation as well, adapting Sophocles' Trachiniae for a setting in a mythical Wild West and translating portions of the Iliad for oral performance. Other passions of mine include beekeeping, Ultimate Frisbee, and shoeless running.
