Welcome

Thanks for visiting my website! I am a lecturer in the English Department at the University of Arizona. I hold a Ph.D. in Rhetoric and Technical Communication from Michigan Technological University, an M.A. in English from Northeastern University, and a B.A. 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 the University of Arizona, I have taught at SUNY Alfred State College, 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/Additional 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.
