I’m a PhD candidate in information science at Rutgers University and a graduate of the MFA program in creative writing at New Mexico State University. I leverage web technologies to build community-driven educational environments and apply my background in user experience, social-centered design, and web development to create more effective and efficient instructional experiences. I am a instructional designer and web consultant, co-creator of BitBright, editor of Little Grid: A Journal of New Media & Information Culture, and a member of the band Dialect. Recently, my poetry and research has appeared in Antioch Review, Bayou Magazine, and Bellingham Review, and The Information Society. My research and teaching focus on electronic textuality and publishing, database aesthetics, free and open source software, and digital libraries.
