I'm an Assistant Professor of Writing, Rhetoric & New Media at Old Dominion University (ODU), where I co-founded and co-direct the CeME Lab, an interdisciplinary lab that focuses on innovating and enhancing experiences with technology in the humanities. My research interests include intellectual property, open source design, new media theory & practice, user-centered design and medieval rhetoric. (And yes, there is a logical connection between technology and medieval rhetoric!)
I have a PhD in New Media and Medieval Rhetoric from the Center for Writing Studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Before returning to graduate school I worked in the information technology sector as an implementation project manager, interaction designer, systems designer, Y2K integration manager, web designer/architect, and technical communicator.
