I am a writer, teacher, rhetorician, internet researcher, and PhD student at the University of Minnesota. My research primarily interrogates digital rhetoric, critical pedagogy, social media, and the Internet.

I teach a variety of rhetoric and writing intensive courses, and my writing regularly appears in local and national media.

I aim to misbehave.
