Bio:I work in the writing program and am co-director of the medical humanities certificate program. Recently my interests have turned to writing associated with the gas industry's impact on Northern Pennsylvania where my extended family owns a farm. I've been interested not only in the rhetoric associated with the debate over fracking but in the role of personal narrative, poetry, and fiction. Outside the academy, I spend much of my time with music and photography.
