I am a PhD candidate in the Rhetoric & Writing program at Bowling Green State University where I teach courses in first-year writing, intermediate writing, and poetry. In addition, I have mentored new graduate teaching associates and I currently serve as the English department photographer and assist in developing the department website. I also teach English and humanities courses online at Indiana Institute of Technology.

My interests include creative writing, transgenre composing (especially the intersections of art and writing), feminist and queer theories, and cultural rhetorics. My research and teaching explore decolonial, collaborative, and arts-based approaches to scholarship, pedagogy, and writing. I am also a poet, an artist, and a photographer, and these roles frequently intersect with my research and teaching.
