Welcome to my home page. I am currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication at Southern Utah University.

Apart from my teaching, I also maintain a new website on public apology (www.publicapologycentral.com) and am working on various projects in attack and defense rhetoric as well as my own theory of discursive responses to apologia (called antapologia).  These projects include an analysis of post-mortem surrogate apologia following the death of Robin Williams, a communication theory textbook (co-authored with Dr. Matt Barton and Jonathan Holiman), and an analysis of memes during the Kevin Spacey sexual abuse scandal (co-authored with Dr. Matt Barton and Dr. Scott Church).  

If you have any questions for me at all, please don't hesitate to contact me.
