Hi everyone! I am a second-year graduate student in Classics, where I focus on Greek and Latin literature. Born and raised in New York City, I enjoyed life in a residential college at Harvard as an undergraduate and at Oxford as a master’s student. I then moved to Rome, where I led historical and cultural walking tours, taught English to Italians, and dog-sat for a friend. After a year in Italy, I returned to New York to teach Latin and Greek at a private high school, which inspired me to become a student again myself at Princeton. I have enjoyed return trips to Italy to visit museums and archaeological sites and to teach Latin in Rome with the Paideia Institute (founded by former Mathey RGS Jason Pedicone).
I am an avid distance runner and am always happy to meet other runners. I am also on the lookout for partners to help me resurrect my squash skills. I particularly enjoy talking about languages, food, history, travel, cities, museums, music, 19th-century novels, dogs, and baseball. Every week I lead a small revival of classical culture at the spoken Latin table in the Mathey dining hall, which I encourage you to join.
This is my first year as an RGS, and I am very excited to be part of the Mathey community and to meet you.
