About Me

I am an assistant professor of rhetoric, writing, and literature and Director of Composition at St. Bonaventure University. My teaching and research interests focus on rhetorical theories of identification; procedural, digital, and nonrational rhetorics; writing and composition studies; 20th century American and postmodern literature; and video games. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin in August 2012. My dissertation drew on archival research from the Don DeLillo and David Foster Wallace collections at the Harry Ransom Center in Austin. My experience working on two game projects for the Digital Writing and Research Lab at UT – Rhetorical Peaks (a rhetoric video game) and Battle Lines (an alternate reality game) – substantially influenced my pedagogy and research, and it led to my participation in the Humanities Gaming Institute at the University of South Carolina in the summer of 2010.
