I’m a doctor, but, like, not that kind of doctor.

I’m a recent PhD (Canadian Literature) starting my first teaching job in a brand new city on the other side of a really large country.  I study pop culture, September 11th, gender stuff, and contemporary American and Canadian fiction.  My major scholarly passion, though, is the pedagogy of undergraduate literature and composition.

In real life, I like terrible television, Dr. Drew, Nintendo, avoiding exercise, cooking elaborately, and writing about cooking elaborately.  I’m married and I have two cats who completely run the show.

I hope to use this blog to record my experiences as a new professor and as a doctor who can’t help people, with some recipes, tv/movie/book/game reviews, and hilarious cat stories for good measure.

  1. Whoever said non-medical doctors can’t help people? In some cases they could probably do more good than the guys/gals with the stethoscopes.

    I think it’s just that you clearly haven’t met enough medical doctors.

  2. I am a doctor too, (not an MD), but I help people….I am a counselor and counselor educator. (I get that you were saying that in “just”)

    I wanted to say Hello Dr.
