I am an educator and scholar based in Tallahassee, though I have also lived in New
Orleans, Quito, Warner Robins, Skopje, Berlin, and Jersey City. Additionally, I have
spent considerable time in Phoenix, Arusha, and Mansa. I specialize in language documentation
and description in East and East-Central Africa (particularly in Zambia, Tanzania,
and the Democratic Republic of Congo) and discourse analytic approaches to intersections
of language, power, ideology, and religion. I am currently Assistant Professor of
English and Linguistics at Florida A&M University and Editor-in-Chief of the Arusha
Working Papers in African Linguistics. My scholarship has been published in a variety
of academic journals, including Discourse & Society, The Journal of Asian and African Studies, Studies in African Languages and Cultures,
Lenguaje, Critical Research on Religion, The Teaching and Learning Anthropology Journal,
Teaching Anthropology, World Literature Today, and Language. Text. Society. Finally, I have worked on the digitization and typesetting of literary works from
the Post-Bellum, Pre-Harlem era (1877-1917), which can be found on my website.
