My field of research is the study of pragmatic aspects of early medieval literate culture, particularly early record-keeping practices and modes of memorialization.  My doctoral thesis (Centre for Medieval Studies in the University of Toronto, 2008) is an analysis of the composition and preservation of Worcester Cathedral’s Conquest-era archive.  I currently teach undergraduate courses on the Vikings in European History and Culture (University of Trinity College of the University of Toronto), the History of Early and Later Medieval Europe and the History of Anglo-Saxon England (Glendon College of York University); I have also taught in the Department of History of Trent University-Oshawa.  I have contributed electronic text markup and data development for Professor A. P. M. Orchard’s “Mapping Anglo-Saxon Poetry Project” (University of Toronto) and pre-Conquest English charter data to Professor Michael Gervers’ DMC-DEEDS Project.

…Novel: Fancy Gap
My thesis project for University of Toronto’s MA in Creative Writing, Fancy Gap, is a novel about a family separated by illness and addiction in southern Appalachia. Religion, sexuality, amnesia and the region’s sociocultural failings propel two brothers and an estranged, self-radicalized, born-again grandmother into a cause de crise for the mountainous border region of western North Carolina and Virginia.
Status: Completion expected April 2019. Mentored by Pasha Malla.
