ABOUT ME

I am a writer, dramaturg, theatre creator, and educator based in Toronto, Canada.

I'm currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Toronto. My dissertation is called The Shock and Awe of the Real: Political Performance and the War on Terror. It's a transnational study of theatre, live art, direct action protests, and digital media installations about the recent conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and beyond. I currently teach theatre in the English Department at the University of Toronto Scarborough. I run a small theatre company called the Blacklist Committee for Unsafe Theatre and consult as a dramaturg in the Toronto theatre community.

My work is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
