A great big headline to catch some attention, because everyone likes attention

So you understand the roaring wave of fear that swept through the greatest city in the world just as Monday was dawning--the stream of flight rising swiftly to a torrent, lashing in a foaming tumult round the railway stations, banked up into a horrible struggle about the shipping in the Thames, and hurrying by every available channel northward and eastward. By ten o'clock the police organisation, and by midday even the railway organisations, were losing coherency, losing shape and efficiency, guttering, softening, running at last in that swift liquefaction of the social body.

I teach digital rhetoric and professional writing in the English department at The University of Tennessee—Chattanooga. I have previously held positions as the Director of Rhetoric Across the Curriculum and Co-Director of the Learning Commons at Quest University Canada as well as Assistant Professor of English at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY, where I was the Co-Director of the new Major in Digital Cultures & Technologies, which included some of my courses: Digital Literacies, Visual Rhetoric, and Writing with New Media.

SUP coffeeMy 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 & CompositionComputers 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.
