Writer, Editor, Designer, Podcaster
Professional & Academic Goals
I am a graduate student at James Madison University earning an MA in Writing, Rhetoric & Technical Communication (WRTC). I completed my BA at JMU in the same field, with minors in Classical Studies and Honors Interdisciplinary Studies.
My work in WRTC encompasses everything from technical writing and editing to creative marketing and design, photography, critical reading, and more. I am pursuing a career in publishing post-graduation. I believe that one of the most rewarding experiences in my chosen field is bringing an author's work to fruition at the highest possible level, and I am excited to help new authors find their voices in publishing!
I am a co-host and contributor with Hugo-nominated sci-fi/fantasy genre podcast The Skiffy and Fanty Show, and produce and edit Conversations at the Cohen Center, a podcast where I interview students and faculty at JMU and beyond about their interdisciplinary research. As a graduate assisstant with The Cohen Center, I also manage their social media accounts and help organize events.
I am a committee member for the 2019 Feminisms and Rhetorics Conference, a national convention being hosted at JMU in November. I also manage the website and social media of a local comic book shop, The Secret Lair Comics.
I currently do freelance web and graphic design, social media managing, and more. Please contact me through my email or the contact form at the bottom of this page if you'd like to work with me!
