Academic and Professional Pursuits

Over the past three years I have enjoyed teaching a variety of courses in the English department of CMC’s Summit campuses. Additionally, I worked as a freelance writer under the business heading River Bridge Communications. From writing ad copy to text book companion Web sites to articles covering anything from the evolution of skiing to water wars in the West, I wrote my way around Summit County and the surrounding areas. I am currently revising a collection of essays about family, place, and the search for the good life set against the backdrop of northern Minnesota’s lake country. Two chapters have been published in Hayden’s Ferry Review and The Oakland Review.
