He holds a doctorate in interdisciplinary theatre studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His scholarly research interests include gender and sexuality in modern and contemporary American theatre, performance and media, as well as representations of Muslims in American theatre and performance. His current book project, entitled Bachelor Parties, Bromances, and the Brokeback West: Male Friendship in Post-Closet American Culture, focuses on male friendship in American culture. His scholarly articles have appeared in Theatre Topics, Quarterly Review of Film and Video, and Ecumenica.
