Reason why I love working for Hampshire: Current and prospective Hampshire students! Invariably interesting and intelligent, they continue to inspire me every day.

Favorite way to travel: By bicycle!

Favorite things to do in the Pioneer Valley: Eating fresh vegetables from the many local farms, swimming in the Connecticut River, biking everywhere, and exploring the many fantastic book shops (particularly the Montague Bookmill).

Favorite poets: Anne Carson, Louise Gluck, Robert Lowell, and Elizabeth Bishop are particularly spectacular.

Favorite literary quarterlies: The Paris Review and McSweeney’s.

Favorite Shakespearean plays: I adore the gender-bending comedies: Twelfth Night, As You Like It, Much Ado About Nothing, and Cymbeline.
