Brief Biographical Sketch:

This is the second time I've participated in HSSP, but the first time I'll be a teacher. Significantly fewer years ago than I sometimes think, I was a Splash and HSSP student, and I'm so excited to be returning to this program from the other side. I'm concentrating in Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality at Harvard, usually focusing on the humanities, which basically means I get to spend my time reading novels, watching movies, etc. and thinking interesting thoughts about them. In my spare time, I enjoy knitting, playing tabletop RPGs and LARPs with my friends, reading webcomics, singing, and generalized herping and derping.
