My humanities background includes a BFA in performance art (School of the Art Institute in Chicago, 1991), two published novels and a story collection, work at nonprofit galleries, arts journalism and appearances in Harper's and This American Life.

My technology background includes working in advertising and brand strategy for high-tech clients, surviving Y2K and the dot-com boom/bust in Seattle, an MA in Digital Media Communication (UW) and PhD in Communication (USC) with a dissertation on technology and disease currently under review at NYU Press. I research and teach cultural studies of technology, gender, sexuality and other areas at Clemson University and direct our MA in Communication, Technology & Society.

I once performed as a backup dancer for a drag queen presidential candidate.
