Research Areas

Cultural Rhetorics


Transplant from Orange County, CA. Spent a year toiling as an adjunct in Southern California before I realized I can create change in other ways. Interested in Chicanx rhetoric, community based knowledge, classroom as a site of direct action. Looking to question, prod, and confuse western epistemologies and rhetorical traditions. Still trying to figure out what that means. Semi-capable musician, writer, and cook. Beer enthusiast, not at all a snob.
