Welcome! I am a translator, poet, scholar, and teacher. Originally from south-central Wisconsin, I currently teach literature and writing at Marquette University in Milwaukee.

Throughout this site you can find my work in professional and creative capacities. While I spend much of my time researching Old English, Middle English, and Latin texts from the Middle Ages, I teach literature up through the present day and publish my own verse and Modern English translations from Old English, Middle English, Latin, and French. I am most interested in the contemplative and monastic traditions of western culture and how these relate to similar traditions throughout the world.

I am eager to share my passions through formal presentations and informal talks and readings, and I’ve been known to lead meditation groups and retreats from time to time, so please reach out if you or your group have shared interests. I look forward to connecting!
