I’m a cultural theorist of technology and communication designer working as the Emerging Technologies Librarian for the Hesburgh Libraries at the University of Notre Dame. There I assist users with the identification, evaluation, and use of emerging technologies in the creation of digital media-rich projects, explore innovative online tools and related services, and identify learning and engagement opportunities to support student research and promote student success.

Previously, I was the web developer for the J. Robert Van Pelt and John and Ruanne Opie Library at Michigan Technological University. There I redesigned and reintegrated the library’s complex Web presence, and established a new visual and textual identity standard for both digital and print communications.

Before that, I taught a variety of courses centered around composition and design at a few universities and colleges, both as a graduate student and for several years as an adjunct lecturer at San Diego State University.
