Rhetoric & Writing
+ Digital Design
My research and teaching focus on digital rhetoric, scientific communication, and social advocacy - how emerging writing technologies can connect people to local issues and create platforms for social change.
Digital platforms and mobile technologies are changing how and where we write. My work examines how the material tools and technologies of writing shape not only the way we read, write, and circulate information, but also how we can better articulate local discourse, amplify marginalized voices, and mobilize civic action.

I create customized learning experiences that best fit your student needs. Designs use interactive formats to motivate learners, sequence activities and build long-lasting skills.
Places are unique, so why adopt a one-size-fits-all communication approach? Localization services adapt learning tools to best fit your place, space, people, & culture.
My courses and workshops socialize learners - creating an environment where people can share knowledge, promote best practices, and support each other.
As a product manager, I work with cross-functional teams to prioritize tasks, engage stakeholders, develop deliverables, and drive iteration. Let's build something together!
Learner-centered modules blend digital, social, & printed materials. Blended learning approaches scaffold lessons while also empowering individuals to explore information at their own pace.
Research drives innovation.
To ensure the best learning outcomes, I identify needs, assess tools, analyze learners, challenge expectations, and develop targeted solutions.
