About My Teaching
My instructional approach is based in practical application. A central theme of my teaching philosophy embraces accountability through team-based problem-solving scenarios. Thus, my students learn through a series of group and individual activities based upon genre-based modules. Each module is built towards a final capstone project in which they demonstrate the skills learned in class through interdisciplinary collaboration.

How I Came to Composition 
Communicating in the sciences is my forte as a teacher and scholar of rhetoric and composition, having been raised in a family of engineers, doctors and writers. Having earned my degrees at institutions that focused on interdisciplinary methods with ties to writing center pedagogy, I became interested in the notion that everyone writes differently—that a “right” way of writing simply does not exist. Thus, I became interested in developing composition approaches with an emphasis on individualized writing processes. My dissertation looked at composition styles of adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Current Research
I am currently working on a book about composing access in digital educational platforms. I have also published in information design and human enhancement technologies. In the past I’ve worked with Sara Schaefer from MTV’s The Nikki and Sara Show and Scott Moran from PBS’s Modern Comedian.

Outside of the University
I play bass guitar. When I’m not jamming on jazz and blues lines, I hike in state parks with my wife and dog. My cat gets to stay at home, though.
