Here at LBCC, I teach WR 115, WR 121, WR 123, ENG 104, ENG 110, and ENG 223. My current courses are listed below.
In addition to teaching part-time at LBCC, I am a full-time senior instructor in the English Department and affiliated faculty in Cinema Studies and the Clark Honors College at the University of Oregon in Eugene. In 2020 I was awarded an LBCC Faculty Innovator grant to develop a Creative Commons collection of student essays from ENG 223.
I grew up in North Idaho and have called the Pacific Northwest home my entire life.
As a cultural historian, my scholarship examines the intersections of media and environmental issues. My first book, a collection titled Ecocinema Theory and Practice was published by the American Film Institute and Routledge Press in 2013 and my second edited collection, Ecomedia: Key Issues was published by Earthscan/Routledge in 2016. I am currently editing second volumes of both of these books. My recent research has focused on inclusive teaching practices and open pedagogy.
