For show & tell in kindergarten I snapped a photo of my class with a toy camera. Shout-outs to Chuck, Steve, Lisa, Rafe, Tim, Mary...

I'm a full professor at St. John's University where I direct the Writing Center and the Institute for Writing Studies. Before St. John's I taught in the Expository Writing Program at Harvard University, and before that worked as a counselor in the Higher Education Opportunity Program at Siena College. I've taught at the University at Albany, Siena College, and Tufts. I'm currently enrolled in the low residency MFA program in creative practice at the Transart Institute, accredited through Plymouth University, UK.
