ducks and pictures and podcast and things

    

Nice to meet me?

Biography

For work, I’m an instructional designer at a small liberal arts college. This affords me the opportunity to jump into many tasks that are directly and very indirectly related to the field. I teach creative writing and enjoy that quite a bit. Sparks flying, minds racing, and people growing. That’s a good place to be. I also write short fiction and sometimes I even like what I come up with.

Projects

Y'ALL HEARD? PODCAST

A show where my co-host, Marissa, and I teach you some new things we learned.

SPORTSCARDTRUTHS

A cathartic little exercise in introspection, masked by nostalgia, humor, and recycling old sports cards.

SANDWICH PORTRAITS

One joke portrait of a sandwich turned into a 5+ year project capturing life between breads.

CREATIVE WRITING

I teach creative writing to (mostly) incoming college freshmen. Got any ideas?

WEBSITE FACELIFTS

I juggle a few websites that aren't my own, too. Lit mags to churches, I like reviving a good website.

GIVE WHAT YOU GOT

I try to! Red Cross Blood Donation, ACLU, Preemptive Love Coalition...

Give What You Got


American Civil Liberties Union

I contribute on a monthly basis to help aid all the support everyone needs to be themselves and live lives of independence and respect.


Red Cross Blood Donor

Once they told me I was a good candidate for platelet donation. It's a time-consuming process, but I give blood and platelets whenever I can. If I can quell any fears, let me know!


Preemptive Love Coalition

As someone who has never really felt at home in the world, I feel an extreme connection to the displaced. This organization helps refugees in need. (They have a good gift shop, too!)
