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

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 Writing Across the Curriculum program at MIT and ran a digital storytelling training business called Storybuilders.
