About me

I'm a writer, educator, and scholar living in Baltimore. I write about the cultural histories of real and fictional technologies, like why the computer was never patented, or how genetic research influenced computer viruses, or what robots can tell us about work. Right now, I'm working on a history of binary code. I teach writing and literature courses at Towson University.

I like researching and writing about almost anything. I'm proud of my recent piece for 500 Pens, an organization of writers working to fight against hate, bias, and discrimination. I've also written content for nonprofits, educational advocacy groups, and even the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

My academic CV is available here.
