I'm a native of the Berkshires and have broad experience teaching in the U.S. and abroad. At the outset of my career I worked as an administrator for six years at the Williams College Museum of Art. Then I decided to return to graduate school to pursue an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Art History and Film Studies at the University of Iowa. For three years I taught an English class for incoming students to help them prepare for the rigors of studying at university. Thanks to a grant from the French government I completed research on dissertation in Paris. I stayed in Paris for a decade, perfecting my French, translating and teaching in a film school outside of Paris.

Between 2010-2015, I taught in Morocco where my students were both young Moroccans and young Americans. I returned to New England in June 2015 in order to finish my new book, which was published in June 2016. In the fall of 2015 I taught two classes at MCLA. Currently I am at work on a new book project, a biography of a French filmmaker. I enjoy teaching, particularly one one one, and am confident that I will be able to help you achieve your academic goals.

My fluency in French and intimate knowledge of French life and customs, having lived in the country for a decade. Earlier, I also lived in Munich, Germany.

Good writing excites me and I love helping students improve the quality of their writing.

I am available for a consultation and look forward to speaking with you to see how I can
best help you achieve your goals.
