I'm a poet, teacher, and critic working at the intersections American Literature, composition and rhetoric, and creative writing.


At Oregon State University Cascades, I serve as interim Program Lead for the low-residency MFA Program in Creative Writing. I teach all levels of writing, including First-Year Composition, Technical Writing, Writing for the Web, and Current Composition Theory. I also teach in the American Studies and Liberal Studies majors, and regularly teach the U-Engage seminar, a course designed to help first-year students acquire confidence and foundational skills necessary for success in the university setting.
