I’m a writer of essays, blog posts, and short and children’s fiction; a design and technology consultant; a teacher at St. Edward’s University and NYU; and a researcher of online writing and educational technologies. In the past I’ve taught and received degrees from the University of Michigan (PhD, BA) and the University of Notre Dame (MFA), and taught at Stanford University. Perhaps most importantly, I’m a proud Midwesterner, but currently live in Austin (by way of SF) with my wife and daughters.
