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.

Outside of academia, I've worked as a graphic designer, web developer, librarian, and editorial assistant. Currently, I teach online professional writing at Purdue University. I also 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.
