Welcome

Thanks for visiting my website!

I’m an Assistant Professor of Technical Writing in the English and Humanities Department at SUNY’s Alfred State College of Technology. I hold a PhD in Rhetoric and Technical Communication from Michigan Technological University, an MA in English from Northeastern University, and a BA in English from the University of Maine at Fort Kent. I also have TEFL certification (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) from the Maximo Nivel Language Center in San Pedro, Costa Rica.

In addition to Alfred State College, I taught at Michigan Tech, the University of New Mexico, the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, Northeastern University, and the University of Maine.

Internationally I taught at Amakusa Senior School in Kumamoto, Japan; the Fiji College of Advanced Education; the Colegio Internacional de Caracas, Venezuela; and the Inlingua International Language Center in San Jose, Costa Rica.

My primary teaching areas include technical and professional writing, multimodal composition, English as a Second Language, and American literature. I’ve also taught public speaking, film theory and criticism, history of ideas, dramatic arts, introductory linguistics, and general humanities courses.
