Academic Background

PhD, English, Stony Brook University
MA, Creative Writing, City College of New York
BA, Psychology, Wesleyan University

Outside of work, I enjoy being outdoor—walking, hiking, camping, biking, and swimming—and studying permaculture—a strategy that designs homes, farms, and landscapes so that they work in harmony with local materials and conditions. My academic research employs principles of permaculture to better understand college writing. My dissertation project defines the concept of narrative ecology, which posits all narratives as living systems, systems that, like our physical homes and earthy environments, shape our experiences and also respond to our actions. At the heart of my teaching and research is my desire to help students better see the choices available to them as writers and thinkers.
