The above photo, taken in December 2014, marks a highlight of my time at Rockford University.  I delivered a Commencement Address for the December graduation ceremony at the request of President Head and the Board of Trustees.  In the address you will learn a a bit about me, my view of the importance of the Liberal Arts, and some of my academic interests.

I am currently an Associate Professor of English at Rockford University in Rockford, IL.  I am also currently serving as Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities.  I moved to Rockford and began my tenure at the University in August of 2008 upon completing my PhD at Arizona State University.  I live here with my wife, Karen, who is an RN and my three kids: Caleb, Julian, and Zoey.
