a little bit about little ol’ me
I am an interdisciplinary artist, thinker and researcher in my fifth year of doctoral studies at Indiana University. My doctoral major is Art Education, located in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the School of Education. I am double minoring in Inquiry Methodology and a second “interdisciplinary minor” that blends Cultural Studies, Art, Aesthetics and Media. I hold an Associate Instructor appointment at Indiana University where I have taught undergraduate and graduate-level courses in Art and Teacher Education.
I am presently co-editing two special issues of the International Journal for Zizek Studies focusing on artistic and creative forms of scholarship in collaboration with Dr. Kristopher Holland of the University of Cincinnati’s School of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning (DAAP). In April 2014, I served as the Chair of Artistic and Creative Research for the International Zizek Studies Conference.
I spend my spare time snuggling with my two Great Danes, Kahlo and Voodoo. I’m also an avid kayaker, occasional runner and cyclist, and have an active yoga practice.
