I’m an Associate Professor in the Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and Discourse at DePaul University in Chicago, where I teach graduate and undergraduate courses in professional and digital writing. I also serve as the Director of DePaul’s MA in Writing, Rhetoric, and Discourse.

My research interests include new media storytelling and rhetorical practice in the digital age. Much of my teaching and research is built around efforts to partner students with Chicago-area nonprofit organizations, to together develop and deploy new media storytelling projects.

Prior to my arrival at DePaul, I taught writing and oral/visual presentation in the WAC program at MIT and ran a digital storytelling training business called Storybuilders.
