My research interests include collaborative writing, new media, fan studies, collective intelligence, and authorship and audience. My work has appeared in Literacy and Composition Studies, Computers & Composition, Computers and Composition Online, and LORE.
Among other jobs, a couple of the more interesting ones include working on an Alaskan fishing boat and as a Persian-Farsi military intelligence “voice and signal communications interceptor and analyst” in the U.S. Army.
In addition to my studies at UW-Madison, I was also a student at Northern Michigan University (BFA 96; BS,02; MA, 04), where I studied Art & Design (drawing; painting; graphic design; film and digital video production) and English (creative writing and composition) and spent a lot of time on the trails of the U.P. and along the shores of Lake Superior XC skiing, mountain biking and hiking. These days, I try to get out and explore the Chattanooga area on my SUP.
