I spend my days teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in digital rhetoric, and directing the Digital Technology and Culture program. I believe that we and our students should engage with both the critical analysis and creative production of texts. I believe in encouraging mindful relations between users and texts, and users and users. I want our texts to matter and to help us see that which is possible.
I spend my personal time swimming laps, wishing I crocheted and beaded more, trying to beat my husband in Scrabble, wondering why more music today doesn't sound like Sleater Kinney, wrestling my 12lb dog, eating my husband's amazing food, and daydreaming about Lake Superior. I believe in kindness, listening, and meaningful conversation. The Keweenaw Peninsula is my home, my blood, and my people, but I find I am happy anywhere with trees, water, or birds (the latter being the most crucial).
