Thanks for visiting my website! I’m an Assistant Professor in the English and Humanities Department at State University of New York’s College of Technology, or SUNY Alfred State College for short. 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.
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.
