I am a Lecturer in the Department of English at North Carolina State University in the Professional and Technical Writing program, where I teach the course Communication for Engineering and Technology. I am also a graduate of two programs at NC State: the PhD program in Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media and the MS in Technical Communication. I also hold a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Information Systems from Guilford College in Greensboro, NC. I have an extensive background in web design and development and search engine optimization. I started in web development when the animated .gif was the "next big thing." I am also an avid gamer and all-around nerd. Proud member of Ravenclaw (though sometimes a deserter to Hufflepuff, depending on the survey/who's asking).

This website serves to document my teaching and research experience as well as serve as an online portfolio of my past web development work.
