I love teaching. My undergraduate work was at Playwrights Horizons Theatre School at New York University where I received a BFA in Acting from the Undergraduate Drama Department and won the Artist and Scholar Award. I received an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from The New School Writing Program, where I received a merit scholarship and won the Nonfiction Chapbook Award. My independent scholarship is in Art and Activism, Intersectional Feminism, Women’s/Gender Studies, Feminist Art, Memoir, Menstrual Equity, Mother Studies, and Sex Ed. My work in Feminist Performance Art has been supported by NYU’s Women & Performance: A Journal of Feminist Theory, as well as the The Feminist Art Project at Rutgers and the Women’s Caucus for Art at the College Art Association. My pedagogical approach is interdisciplinary and integrates theory and practice.

I have taught at NYU, Gotham Writer’s Workshop, SUNY Purchase and The New School, and been a visiting scholar at NYU, as well as guest lectures at The New School and MIT. I have supervised Senior Projects at SUNY Purchase and been a First Year Advisor at The New School.
