n my day job, I’m a researcher of writing and serve as the Coordinator of the Composition Program at Bowie State University. In addition to studying and teaching writing, I also believe in writing as an excellent tool to think and communicate. My general writings can be found on my website: http://www.atthecentersattheedges.net
I like the interactions between computers and old media. Like, can writing be the same if we put pen on paper or if we press buttons on a keyboard? And with writing I mean the process of it–the thinking, composing, revising of it. I like to think about writing–and how it shapes our thoughts. An epistemology, so to speak. But basically, I am a teacher who thrives seeing other people experience the overwhelming adventure of writing. Anything. Anywhere. In any medium. On any occasion.
