About Me.

College English Teacher, Musician, Audio / Video Producer & General Technophile

After working jobs in industries ranging from real estate to retail, I joined California State University, Fresno's Department of English as a lecturer in 2015 where I continue to teach a variety of courses in composition and rhetoric. In 2017 I also began teaching composition, rhetoric, and logic courses at College of the Sequoias in Visalia, CA. My teaching and research interests include peaceful language practices, mindfulness, compassionate pedagogy, ed-tech, and curriculum design for inclusion and resiliency. Yet my passions don’t end with teaching and language.

In addition to helping my students find powerful and peaceful language practices, in 2019 I started Firewell Technology Solutions, a bespoke IT service company serving small businesses.

When my students find out that I also own an IT service company, they’re often as surprised as my clients are when they find out that I’m also college English teacher. And I get it. Scholarship in education and English seems a world apart from a profession in IT. But my view is that there is a synergy between education and technology.

My students often benefit from my technical expertise (particularly during the times of emergency distance learning protocols). My clients often benefit from the skills that come with advanced degrees in English, namely, accurate, compassionate, and collaborative language practices that enable us to work together joyfully and efficiently. So I purposefully cultivate ongoing expertise in both of these fields in order to provide a unique and useful experience for my students and my clients.

  • 2015 2012

    MA English Literature, Summa Cum Laude

    California State University, Fresno

    My thesis explores what I have named “friction zones,” points of interpretive anomaly and contention between the Judeo-Christian narrative and other, antecedent mytho-pagan narratives; moreover, this work focuses on these friction zones as they appear in selections from Victorian prose and poetry, revealing tensions between hegemonic and subversive narratives. While this research builds on feminist and deconstructionist literary theory, it also informs my core pedagogy which is to help students see places in their own lives where they have been marginalized and to nurture their own power in their present and future narratives.
