I grew up in upstate New York and went to high school in Manhattan. I then moved to Portland, Oregon and received a BA from Reed College, where I studied Greek, Latin, Russian, and Chinese. I wrote my junior thesis on metrics and metapoetics in Euripides before writing a senior thesis on poetics and generic innovation in Vergil's Georgics.
My interests in classics are wide ranging. Since at Princeton, I've studied Oscan and Umbrian and worked on the Iguvine Tablets, and I also wrote a paper about the reception of Vergil in Werner Herzog's films. But my interests tend toward the Greek side of things, and I'm interested in historical linguistics, metrics, genre, and poetics.
More generally, I really love learning languages, ancient and modern.You can find me at the spoken Latin and Ancient Greek tables, and you should hit me up if you want to do spoken Sanskrit.
