I was born and raised in rural Northern Ontario and lived in Toronto for several years before relocating to the United States in 2015 to join the curatorial staff at Rare Book School. During my graduate studies, I worked at the rare book library and research centre, Joseph Sablé Centre for 19th Century French Studies, and taught undergraduate FSL and French Cultural Studies courses in the Department of French at the University of Toronto. My interdisciplinary doctoral dissertation focused on publishers of poetry in 19th century France, with particular attention paid to the careers of Auguste Poulet-Malassis, Alphonse Lemerre, and Léon Vanier. My current research has shifted towards the study of contemporary graphic novels and comic book culture.
