Bio:

I am a graduate student at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom, reading for an MPhil in Modern Middle Eastern Studies. I have a B.A. from the College of William and Mary in Virginia, USA, in Government and Linguistics. I currently live and work in Oxford, and I am always up for a bit of adventure. I was born in New York, New York (USA) -- yes, right on the island of Manhattan -- and later moved with my family to Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and then to Williamsburg, Virginia. Having two former actors for parents, I grew up in a very theatrical and artistic household, so I spent many early years performing in plays, singing in musicals, and making a right mess with paints, crayons, charcoal and other sundry media. My current research projects on media in the Middle East emerged from my interest in the intersection of language and politics, and my present studies focus on mobile technology, the Internet, and activism in the Middle East. Beyond academics, I love playing tennis and being outdoors. I also engage in a fair number of culinary experiments. I particularly enjoy baking bread and playing with pumpkin as an ingredient, since it is one of my favourite foods. Still, nothing beats an afternoon of crafting -- painting, sewing, card-making, you name it. I do delight in those "crafternoons" spent with good friends, relaxing, reflecting, and creating.
