I write fiction and nonfiction work in addition to my academic publications. Identifying with Mark Van Doren’s idea “the art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery,” I apply information from intellectual investigations to inspire innovation among others. My written work appears in peer-reviewed journal articles, trade publications, books, book chapters, and conference proceedings with additional articles appearing in magazines and newspapers. I am also an unrepentant fan of the Oxford comma; the semicolon is another of my guilty pleasures!
