About Me


I’m an assistant professor in the Department of Communication at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.

I have a Ph.D. in rhetoric from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. At Mason, I teach courses in rhetoric, organizational communication, public speaking, and communication ethics. To find out what I’m teaching in upcoming semesters, visit my Mason page.

I conduct research about how social movements organize and form, and I’m particularly interested in the rhetoric of the labor movement in the United States.

You can learn more about my research by visiting my page on Academia.edu.

In my spare time, I love to cook (or more specifically bake all sorts of cookies and cakes), read novels, and travel to new places.
