I'm a non-traditional student who returned to academia after twelve years of military service. After receiving my BA in Communication Studies from EWU in the summer of 2018, I chose to apply my knowledge towards graduate studies and am currently pursuing my MA in English with a concentration in rhetoric and technical communication. I intend to graduate in 2020.

My father, a self-taught mechanical engineer, taught me when I was little that there is nothing mystical or intimidating about learning how various machinery operates, and that there is pride to be found in learning how to repair things yourself. My special areas of interest for repair work are cameras and computers.
