I am an expert in English literature, academic writing, and creative writing (fiction and nonfiction). I earned my B.A. in English from Westminster College, the most prestigious liberal arts college in the West. After working as a writer in the corporate sector, I earned my MFA in Writing from Lindenwood University.

I am passionate about teaching these subjects because I think it gives us a greater sense of purpose and expands our minds and our capacity for empathy.

My teaching style adheres to a socratic seminar format, which is both collaborative and inclusive in its approach. I believe that we can learn as much from our peers as we can from our formal instructors, and that students learn best when they have a voice in the learning process. With positive reinforcement, I believe we can learn anything.

My favorite subject to teach is creative writing because I think we all have a story inside of us. It just requires discipline and a little bit of skill to bring it to life. Both of these things can be taught. Writers are not born, they are made.

I am passionate about essays (creative and academic). There is certainly an art to it, but it can be mastered by anybody with a little guidance.

I also enjoy teaching English literature, which was my original passion before I became a writer. I love reading and picking apart a text to get as much meaning out of it as possible.

Outside of academia, I am an award-winning author that simply cannot get enough of writing and reading. In pre-COVID times, I was a frequent traveler, visiting everywhere from Scotland to Japan. Life is a gift and I don't intend on wasting it.
