Create. Compose. Communicate.

KU faculty member, Department of American Studies. Lecturer focusing on the interdisciplinary study of disability and culture. Member of KU Writing Center Faculty Writing Group.

"Outside of my duties as a professor, writing is an essential life action and a very fulfilling way of processing my worldview and the worldviews of others. It's a way of reading and interacting with the world. I don't look for universals. Instead, I speak to a particular moment. When I write, I reach beyond myself to interact with a community. Storytelling, in this, is extremely important-- smaller stories that speak to larger narratives. I prefer to be a part of those conversations and narratives that promote social change. I want to be a part of the collective momentum. In that forward movement, I want to leave something behind for the future."
