My focus is on people. People acting with technologies.
I'm fascinated by how writing mediates knowing, being, and doing.
I study groups and group communication — especially communication that's mediated by networked writing technologies. Almost all of my work uses empirical visual research methods, primarily visual ethnography.
I live in Lexington, Kentucky. I ride a bike, I climb rocks, and I think a lot about everyday human experience.
