A white, blonde woman (me!) smiling at the camera

Thanks for being here!

I’m a cultural critic and academic writing about gender, race, and rock ‘n’ roll (sixties girl groups edition)  with a Ph.D in English from the CUNY Grad Center. I’m firmly invested in helping make academia more equitable and focused on justice. I’m also a freelance writer with bylines in the New York Times and Ms. and a developmental and copy editor, too. (I don’t sleep much.) For fun, I like to write constantly, pet other people’s dogs, read, play in parks, get tattoos, and kickbox as often as I can.
