In addition to my role as an Associate Professor of English at Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, OH, I am a Ph.D. Candidate in English at Old Dominion University. My research interests involve the study of video game timespace, technological mediation of ontological relations, postmodernist literature and theory, and cultural studies. I'm currently co-editing a collection of essays with Marc A. Ouellette, Being Dragonborn: Critical Essays on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, under contract at McFarland Press. My dissertation, Playing on the Threshold: Topological Chronotopes and Video Games, examines timespace configurations in video games that recirculate and transform chronotopes across media and genre in light of their socio-political contexts and historical rhythms. My work has recently appeared in Transnational Literature, MediaTropes, Teaching English in the Two-Year College, and What Philosophy Can Teach You about Your Lover. I have essays under review at several other peer-reviewed journals.
