I started academic life as a medievalist, using digital tools to prove my theories about Chaucer's use of romance vocabulary coupled with Anglo-Saxon vocabulary. I worked in the corporate sector as a paralegal and as a computer support specialist in a Unix shop -- way back before the advent of any windows interfaces. I've been teaching composition for over twenty years. All my students blog and compose in new media.
