Public work

I regularly write elsewhere because academic pursuits are not valuable when only shared within academia. I have also appeared on a few podcasts or recorded videos over the years. As the videos and podcasts are less frequent those will appear first with links to other writing following after that.

Teen Tix

My earliest forays, that were not livejournal posts, into reviewing came in the form of being a Teen Tix Press Corps reviewer. One of the first folks to participate in this continuing program, I wrote for them from 2007-2010 about theater in the Seattle area. I also participated in the first Young Critics Workshop. Here are links to those:


Heavy Stuff a Thin Place

Keeping Up With The Shakespearians


A Fresh Though Classic Flower

Review: Afloat or not?


A Marvelous Party

Getting your money’s worth   


You can tell he likes rats

Unique and romantic, IBT’s Dracula equals Halloween fun

Smart, witty and fast, The Women just ropes you in

A note on older work

This it not my first attempt at a website of sorts. I have three defunct blogs over at blogspot. The first was on my undergraduate remote sensing project, the second was on my undergraduate senior paper, and the last was started to practice writing with regularity that then morphed into my first series of essays exploring popular culture. I am linking to them here but do not necessarily support all the opinions I have previously written and some of those may disappear as I chide my past self for those choices.
