I am a college professor, an expert on belonging and social justice, and a content creator. I have spent my career researching and teaching about how we create and challenge social inequality (including racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, classism, ethnocentrism, and xenophobia) through communication. I also create innovative digital content that explores the stories and images that shape our understanding of humanity and our place in it.


I grew up in both Arizona and Minnesota. I was raised by a single mom who is now retired and overly active on Facebook and likes too many of my posts on Instagram 😀 I have two siblings, three niblings, two doggies, three kiddos, and a fantastic partner. I used to be a professional photographer and videographer.  I spend most of my free time playing Fortnite, watching YouTube, reading tarot, doing creative projects, laughing at memes, taking pictures, and learning how to build things.

I hope you stick around :)
