Among my academic accomplishments are my research and presention on the use of emerging technology, including Google Glass and augmented reality, in professional writing classes, and writing the feature article, focusing on the green efforts of the Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick, MD, for the 2014 issue of #Sustain, a publication of Frostburg State University.

Before coming to Michigan State, I worked as a professional writer, with a concentration on sports and popular culture.
