I’m an Assistant Professor of English at Western Kentucky University, where I teach courses in professional, technical, and multimedia writing, as well as the teaching of writing, digital rhetoric, and new media literacy.

My research focuses on the relationship of visual rhetoric, usability, and technical communication, and my dissertation looks at motion design as an emerging design literacy in professional/technical communication. I argue that motion can be used rhetorically to develop more useful, engaging, and ethical visuals just like other design features such as color or typography. I also take half-hearted attempts at an indoor herb garden and geeking out over stand up comedy.
