I am a writer and teacher living in Queens, New York. My book is "Teaching Developmental Writing" 4e. Other recent publications include “Occupy Basic Writing: Pedagogy in the Wake of Austerity,” in Nancy Welch and Tony Scott’s collection Composition in the Age of Austerity, and an entry on ASU-Tempe’s Writing Program, in collaboration with Shirley K. Rose and Brent Chappelow, in Writing Program Architecture, edited by Bryna Siegel Finer and Jamie Farnham-White. An article on graduate education and basic writing is forthcoming in Journal of Basic Writing. I co-coordinated the Stretch Writing Program at ASU-Tempe from 2013-2018.
