“The ordinary registers intensities—regularly, intermittently, urgently, or with a slight shudder.”
I'm fascinated by how writing mediates knowing, being, and doing.
I study mundane, everyday relationships between writing, rhetoric, affects, and ontologies. Almost all of my work uses empirical visual research methods, primarily visual ethnography and multisensory autoethnography.
I live in Lexington, Kentucky. I walk, I ride a bike, I climb rocks, and I think a lot about everyday human experience.
