I teach English at BCC, help edit the journal Supernatural Studies, and co-write theater reviews for the website Culture Catch. My research interests include early modern English literature, especially drama; Irish literature (again, particularly drama); video game studies; popular culture studies; monster studies; and theories of space/place.
