Hello and welcome to my website! This site includes information about me, my work, and my interests in the fields of writing instruction, language, literature, and pedagogy.
I teach a variety of writing courses at UC Berkeley, where I have also taught for the Summer Bridge program, the Summer English Language Studies program, and the Global Edge Program. Prior to working at Cal, I taught for both the Literature Department and the Writing Program at UC Santa Cruz.
My interests include multimodality and AI image creation as a translation practice, authenticity and the digital other, and developing wholistic pedagogical strategies for contemporary language and expression landscapes through student discovery. My background includes research in global histories and literature of the American West.
