I am an Associate Professor in the Department of English at Saint Louis University, where I also coordinate the Computer Assisted Instruction Lab.  I am a managing editor at enculturation: a journal of rhetoric, writing, and culture.

I earned my Ph.D in Rhetoric and Composition at Purdue University. My primary area of research and teaching is rhetorical theory and composition, with specializations in technical and professional communication, new media and public rhetoric.

I live in St. Louis, MO, with my wife Jodi and our two children, William James and Scarlett Rose.
