Since the fall of 2013, I’ve been teaching in the English Department at the University of Delaware (UD). I teach undergraduate classes that focus on professional, technical, and business writing. In addition, I am currently the chair of the Interactive Media Minor, an interdisciplinary minor that provides students the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills applicable to various forms of interactive/digital media. I am also affiliate faculty for the Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN). Prior to teaching at UD, I taught in the English Department at New Mexico State University (NMSU) as a graduate teaching assistant.
