In Summary

I believe in the power of the written word. I've seen it transform lives first hand.

Teaching rhetoric and communications in the global information age is my passion, so with a PhD in English, I pursued graduate work in educational technology, professional communications, and rhetoric, teaching writing, and digital media.

Now I have the daily privilege of using words to help bring new worlds into focus, important issues to the forefront, and positive change to people and their communities.


Sample my pedagogical approach to teaching rhetoric through Aristotle's endoxa and Lloyd Bitzer's exigence and rhetorical situation at Prison (&) Writing | Contact Zone.
