I'm a recently minted Ph.D. and 2014-2015 doctoral fellow in Technical Communication and Rhetoric (TCR) at Texas Tech University.
Although my teaching and research interests are varied, they broadly include the intersections of: teaching writing, gaming studies, instructional design, digital rhetoric, usability, and technology and culture.
My dissertation, "How Games Work: A Case Study of Role-Playing Games as Instructional Documentation," explored the use and analysis of role-playing games (RPGs) as instructional design artifacts. Some of my additional research has appeared in Computers and Composition Online; Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy; Meaningful Play 2014; the Journal of Technical Writing and Communication; and others.
