ASSISTANT PROFESSOR

And honorary Kentucky Colonel. I teach interdisciplinary courses in the University of New Mexico's Honors College and am the instructor/faculty advisor for the Western Regional Honors Council's award-winning magazine Scribendi. In my spare time, I am usually involved in some combination of open space, white space, CMYK and RGB, flash nonfiction, long trails, f-stops, line breaks, and several Adobe Programs running simultaneously.
