After trying out careers in newspapers (writer and photographer) and book publishing (sales and marketing), I decided to return to my first love: school. I earned my MA at Eastern New Mexico University, and continued my education by earning a PhD at the University of Oregon. I am currently finishing three articles and am working on a book project that examines James Fenimore Cooper through an ecocritical lens. In my spare time I can be found sailing on the waters of Lake Michigan or back in school working on my Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies.
