Born outside of Philadelphia and raised in Chicago, David Strong is at home among skyscrapers, bumper-to-bumper traffic, and cold winter blasts from Canada. Yet, because the allure of the South always intrigued him, he came to Tyler as soon as the opportunity arose. He with his wife Christie and two children, Alexa and Gavin, now call Texas their home.

Since arriving here at the university, he has taught a wide variety of literature and composition courses, including a yearly course on rock-and-roll. His articles focus on medieval dream visions and Shakespeare, being published in journals such as, The Chaucer Review and Philological Quarterly.
