I've been teaching since 2013 and what I enjoy most about the work is the explicit call to think deeply and study with other humans. My reading and teaching interests include queer and crip theory, fat liberation, speculative fiction, and literacy studies. Beyond my teaching work, I enjoy attempting to garden, playing role-playing games with friends, and spending time with my deeply obnoxious but equally loveable cats.
