I’ve reported in English, French and German from several countries across Europe for the Times. Favorite stories: A profile of London’s night czar; a dispatch from a punk festival in Blackpool, England; a report from Banksy’s parody theme park, Dismaland; a behind-the-scenes look into a world tour of “Hamlet;” and a feature on Shermin Langhoff, the only female leader of a major Berlin theater.
I have a bachelor’s degree with honors from the University of Chicago and a master’s degree from Humboldt University of Berlin. I was a freelance theater writer for Time Out Chicago for four years, and wrote over 100 reviews for the magazine. My writing has appeared on one platform or another of Exberliner, the Boston Phoenix and WBEZ, Chicago’s NPR station. I have taught English, catered, and done all manner of general assignment temp work. I’m from Boston, Mass.
