Two areas of research I delve into are the changing trends/relevance of the traditional publishing industry + evolving studies in communication theory.”

Bio

A graduate of Middlebury College, I spent 15 years in the publishing industry in multiple roles including editing and writing.

For the past 16 years I have taught course across both the English and Media Studies Departments at Johnson & Wales University. With a background in literature and creative writing, I developed the Writing for Publication and Travel Writing courses for the university.

In 2016, my novel “What the Waves Know” was published by HarperCollins.

I have been an active member of both adademia and professional publishing for nearly two decades and continue to be a curious student in the evolution of both fields.

Two areas of research I delve into are the changing trends and relevance of the traditional publishing industry and evolving studies in communication theory that study the changing modalities and shifts in professional and interpersonal communication.
