- B.A. University of California, Berkeley
- M.F.A. Brooklyn College
- Ph.D. Yale University
After graduating from Berkeley I spent several years traveling and teaching in Europe (mainly Spain and Belgium) before embarking on a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and Film Studies at Yale. My research moves between broad questions about narrative, experience and history and more microcosmic areas of focus. I am currently revising a dissertation on art and politics in the work of John Berger. I have also written on contemporary world cinema, Latin American cinema, and documentary film. Alongside my academic research I am at work on a documentary about modern dance and a collection of stories.
