Professional Mission

my professional portraitI help people use digital technologies and effective communication practices to improve their communities and organizations. This includes performing UX research–or research on the experiences users have with websites and other online applications, teaching marketable and useful skill sets that help people launch careers within an increasingly knowledge-based economy, and working as a technical communicator, grant writer, and consultant. I firmly believe that all citizens deserve access to the most effective means of communication for carrying out their professional and personal goals.

  • If you are a fellow researcher and/or educator, you might be interested in my research and teaching pages, which contain many samples of this work. If you are interested in service-learning resources, check out my page for that, which contains my personal approach to service-learning, as well as example assignments and support materials.

  • If you work for a non-profit, business, or community-based organization and are interested in a potential service-learning partnership, you might want to take a look at my example student work page to get a sense of the types of deliverables students in my classes create, and then contact me to discuss a potential partnership.
