ben-headshotI am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and American Cultures at Michigan State University. I teach courses in Professional WritingExperience Architecture, and Rhetoric and Writing. I am also an Assistant Director of the MA in Digital Rhetoric and Professional Writing and a HUB for Innovation in Learning and Technology Fellow. Before starting at MSU, I spent 7 years as instructor and senior instructor of writing at Florida International University, where I co-founded and coordinated the English Department’s Digital Writing Studio.

My teaching, research, and service aims to help people learn, create, communicate, and participate in today’s increasingly complex and expansive institutional, organizational, and community networks. Routledge’s ATTW Series published my first book titled Communicating Project Management: A Participatory Rhetoric for Development Teams. In addition, my scholarship has appeared in journals such as Computers and Composition, Transactions on Professional Communication, Technical Communication, and the Journal of Technical Writing and Communication.
