 Although I grew up in Cleveland and Dallas, I consider Indiana and Trine my real home. I have been at Trine University since 2003, teaching primarily writing courses, but also odd courses in theatre, dramatic literature, Aesop's fables, and music videos.

I am curious about the world around me and have a wide variety of interests, but here are a few odd details:

  • I was a main character in a regionally developed film while at the University of Maine.
  • I am a Pokémon master.
  • I am fascinated by graphic design and how it contributes to communication.
  • I’m listening to a lot of music and always read plays now and think about how that music connects to the play.

I spend a lot of time on campus in my office and welcome conversations on just about any topic.
