  • Consultant Spotlight

    Writing is a strange endeavor; it can distill thinking and at the same time help unfurl it. I hope to encourage students, then, to consider good writing skills as an important mode of their critical and creative thinking, as writing can take on a revelatory role or a generative one. Lastly, I believe in the importance of developing an on-page aesthetic, in academic discourse included, to articulate with clarity, precision, and even a little flair.
