"What fresh hell is this?" ~Dorothy Parker

I believe in rhetoric, the nuanced-nitty-gritty-under-a-microscope-situated-practice of shaping common sense through language.

My research investigates the role of style in U.S. political culture, from Trump's #wordsalad to Beyonce's "Formation." My research interests intersect with the courses teach I teach in public speaking, rhetoric, speech, media, and interpersonal communication.

I want the world to mince its words. I want a classroom so full of energy that other people ask us to quiet down. I want everyone to speak now, never hold their peace.

Unquestionably do I support the mission of public education as an increasingly uncommon common good. There's other stuff too but...that's why I made a website. Go click on things!
