About Me

I am a Professor in the Department of English at Salisbury University, where I have taught cinema studies and adaptation studies courses since 2004.  Prior to that time, I earned my Ph. D. in English, with a concentration in Film Studies, at the University of Florida (2003).  My research interests include director studies, in the work of Richard Linklater, as well as cinephilia, documentary studies, and adaptation studies, and I have taught courses in film history, director studies, documentary, cinephilia, and adaptation.  With Elsie Walker and Ryan Conrath, I help run the film-concentration program in the English Department at Salisbury University, and I am Consulting Editor for the journal Literature/Film Quarterly, a long-standing academic journal devoted to adaptation.
