I have been working higher education for 7 years, mostly as a Hall Director. In my current role at SUNY Geneseo I manage a specialty housing area (Writers House) which includes the development of a residential curriculum focused on student interest in writing. I have had the pleasure of teaching First Year Success Seminar courses for first year students but also leadership courses for student leaders on campus. I also am a certified Safe Zone training facilitator, an adviser for a Greek organization, and an adviser for a sexual assault awareness and prevention group on campus. My scholarly interests include, digital rhetoric, identity formation, epistemology, imperialism (specifically its impacts), the epic tradition, and speculative realism (a new favorite) - specific writers of interest include Homer, Dante, William Blake, John Keats, H.P. Lovecraft, Neil Gaiman, Michel Foucault, Julia Kristeva, Mikhail Bakhtin, and Graham Harman.
I embrace my curiosity as much as possible and can often be found geeking out about select TV shows, most films, video games (find me on steam), board/card games, running, P90X and other "extreme" workouts, computer coding, and reading (fiction and non-fiction alike).
