"As designer and principal content creator for several websites (including this one!) with a background in printing, marketing & communication, I am keenly interested in how information is transmitted. As technology advances, we need the written word more than ever! I enjoy all forms of writing from creative blogging and marketing materials to business emails, contracts and proposals. Among my passions is great literature, which I look forward to introducing to students in a meaningful way."
