As an online teacher, learner, and citizen I work daily to enhance the circulation of potentially liberating communication via free digital tools. Through intentionally designed social networks I facilitate connections between innovative, beautiful, or content-rich resources and the people who can use those to facilitate the greater good.

Via a wide repertoire of digital tools, I seek pathways to bridge gaps in learning—at the individual and institutional level. I enjoy collaborating with other justice-oriented faculty and staff at St.Kate's to facilitate improved opportunities for all people.
