Greetings! I’m currently the Dean of the School of the Arts, Media, Performance and Design at York University in Toronto, Ontario (Canada). Before arriving in Canada, I was a professor of theater and performance studies at Bowdoin College, the University at Buffalo (SUNY), and Colgate University. At these schools and by invitation, I talk about theater history and theory, experimental performance, and the intersections of media technologies and performance, both historical and in contemporary culture. In fall of 2015, I was in residence at Utrecht University (Netherlands) as a Fulbright Scholar and visiting professor in the Department of Media and Cultural Studies.

In all my work, I strive to facilitate meaningful connections between the past + present; research + teaching; students + faculty; practice + theory; critique + creativity.
