I'm a second-year doctoral student at OSU who is interested in the intersection between technology, rhetoric, and stylistics. My dissertation project is beginning to take shape around discourse communities with alternative (non-logos based) technological consubstantialities (technophobes, retro-fetishists, pro-gun activists, etc.)—how they form, develop aesthetics, select histories, gatekeep, and communicate/clash with other techno-logics.

I have a book chapter coming out about the intersections of classical rhetoric, stylistics, ethics, and new media interfaces.

I'm interested in technological nostalgia and how communities rewrite their histories in response to new technologies. I also really like old tech and am an avid Old Time Radio listener.
