Personal Interests

I love cooking, especially traditional Southern, Cajun, and Tex-Mex dishes.  I make a mean chili and am constantly trying to perfect my buttermilk biscuits.  I love video games (Mass Effect and Portal are my favorites), and I was blessed to be born at a time that I could see Star Wars when it first came out.


BA, English, Murray State University

MA, English, University of Tennessee

Educational Philosophy

I believe higher education is a critical part of a modern civilized world, and I think the most important thing students learn in higher education is to make informed decisions.  My philosophy is that the most successful student is one who questions everything and seeks to learn and understand the world.  When you study something you love, you will always be successful, and when you keep an open mind, you’ll find there is much in the world to love.
