I am a fifth-year PhD Candidate in Rhetoric and Composition at Purdue University. My research and teaching engage with online communities of participatory knowledge-making and creative work, particularly volunteer groups and projects. I am also interested in intellectual property, remix culture, transdisciplinarity, and digital rhetorics.

Currently, I am preparing to join the faculty of Northwestern State University of Louisiana as Assistant Professor of English in the Department of English, Foreign Languages, and Cultural Studies. Outside of academia, I've worked as a graphic designer, web developer, librarian, youth counselor, and editorial assistant. I occasionally still do freelance editing work and I record audiobooks with LibriVox when I can. 

This website houses my scholarly activities and engagements. You can also find me and my words on twitter @plaidsicle, and at my semi-acadmic blog plaidsicle.blogspot.com.
