I am an award-winning educator who prioritizes ethos, publics, and joining the classroom to wider communities. I have taught courses on Romantic media; letter writing as evidence; voice-user interaction; and sound and equity in shared spaces.
In April 2018 a student in my course "Architectures of Sound: Poetry, Place, Politics." won an award for his audio essay "The Echo: An Instrument of Oppression," about M. NourbeSe Philip's experimental poem Zong!
In Atlanta I created and produce the podcast Flash Readings by the Brittain Fellows at Georgia Tech (on iTunes too!). I also co-host and co-produce the podcast Rhetorical Questions with communications scholar Brian Amsden (Clayton State).
I like the rhythms of language & the music of sounds as they are. I like the surprising things people say because they don’t yet know what they’re saying. I like other people’s stories better than my own.
