About

For an aspiring minimalist, I do all the things! I teach writing and rhetoric with an emphasis in digital multimodality. I enjoy making short films as digital scholarship. My book on all of this is due out later this year from Colorado State University Open Press. My interests include:
  • Affect
  • Composition
  • Design
  • Digital Media
  • DIY Digital Filmmaking
  • Film
  • Multimodality
  • Performance
  • Rhetoric
  • Visual Rhetoric
  • Writing Program Administration

Education

PhD. (1998) University of South Florida Rhetoric & Composition Secondary emphasis (praxis), Digital Media Secondary emphasis (scholarly), Late 20th C. Literature
