About

Greetings, and welcome to my online portfolio!

I’m an Assistant Professor of English at Georgia Gwinnett College, an open-access liberal arts college serving the metro Atlanta area, where I teach first year writing and American literature. My research interests include trans-Atlantic modernism, American literature and culture, postcolonial literature and theory, material culture, food studies, and globalization. I am co-editor of Modernism and Food Studies, forthcoming from University Press of Florida in February 2019.

I completed my PhD in English at Indiana University, Bloomington, where I also earned my MA in 2008, and I am an alumni of Warren Wilson College, a liberal arts and work college located near Asheville, North Carolina.

Since 2007, I have taught a wide range of college-level composition and literature courses, including college composition, professional writing, argumentative writing, and introduction to fiction, among others. From 2011-2013 I served as Assistant Director of Elementary Composition. In this capacity I worked with the Director of Composition to revise the curriculum and develop training and teaching materials for Indiana University’s required freshman composition course. In the 2012-2013 academic year, I worked with Bedford/St. Martin’s Press as a local expert and media trainer for CompClass, an online composition resource and course management system.

I also work as a freelance editor and writing consultant. You can learn more about that side of my professional life here.
