As an Instructional Designer at Idaho State University, I work to help faculty design engaging, clear, and accessible online courses that improve outcomes for every learner. I’m enthusiastic about open educational resources (OERs) and open pedagogical approaches.

I’m also a student in Idaho State University’s Ph.D. in English and the Teaching of English program, which emphasizes pedagogy more than most English literature programs. I serve as the Web Editor for In the Library with the Lead Pipe, an open access, open peer reviewed library journal.

Among other places, you can find me on Mastodon at the HCommons.social instance and at the Scholar.social instance.
