I am a native Floridian, hailing from the small farming community of Samsula, Florida. I received my PhD in Texts and Technology from the University of Central Florida in 2014. I hold an M.A. in English, Literary, Cultural, and Textual Studies from UCF (2010), and BAs in English and Fine Art from Flagler College, St. Augustine (1993). My research interests include rhetoric in science and nature writing, communication of human-nature relationships in agricultural and environmental issues, and environmental and science communication in digital media contexts. As part of my dissertation project, I created a community history archive, the Samsula Historical Archive Community Project (samsulahistory.net) as a way of exploring some of these ideas. I currently teach Composition II and Writing about Science & Technology at UCF.
