I am a writer and a scholar of activist and political rhetorics, focusing on queer, feminist, and antiracist movements. I’m especially interested in studying coalitional politics and the challenges of advocacy across differences. I also research and write about the arts and digital media, focusing on connections between these areas and contemporary social justice activism.

Currently I am an Assistant Professor of Writing and Rhetoric at the University at Albany, SUNY. I earned my PhD in Rhetoric and Composition at the University of Louisville. I am also a graduate of the MFA program in creative nonfiction at Emerson College.

My work has been recognized through the Mina Shaughnessy Prize from the Modern Language Association and the Gloria Anzaldúa Rhetorician Award from the Conference on College Composition and Communication.
