I'm an Assistant Professor of Technical Communication at Utah Valley University. I research networked communication, organizational rhetoric, and digital rhetoric. I am committed to the idea that strong technical and professional communication can reach across disciplines and strengthen communities. My teaching experience includes a variety of writing courses: business, technical, multimedia, and first-year.
Prior to coming to UVU, I received a PhD from Purdue University. I also have an MA from Brigham Young University studying Cold War literature and spent some years managing an IT Sales/Support/Business Development team for the Microsoft Partner Network.
I read all the time, have a substantial comic book collection, and can go on for hours about classic movies. Ask me about my favorite horror movie sometime (but be prepared for a long answer).
