Hello! I'm Nick!

 

I am a dynamic educator with specialized training in literature, writing, and cultural studies. I am also a scholar of comics and media studies, and I use popular culture to develop media literacy skills and to foreground multimodal writing in my classes. When I am not busy teaching or writing, I am either playing with pixels on my laptop, parked in front of a television screen with one of my children, or taking a walk through the neighborhood with my music turned up just a bit too loud.

TESTIMONIALS
 
FORMER STUDENT

"I walked away from your class not just having gained knowledge, but passion. You don't just share the 'what'—you share the 'how' and the 'why' and all that fun stuff. There's a big different between inspiring someone to think and inspiring someone to be an inspirer themselves. And you make your students want to be inspirers."

FACULTY COLLEAGUE

"His pedagogical approach, his knowledge of the discipline, and his interaction with students all reinforce what I already knew about his teaching as I walked into the class: that his students, his department, and the university all benefit greatly from having him around. I want to learn from him so that I can be a better teacher myself."

AWARDS COMMITTEE

"The review committee for the article prize enthusiastically praised your essay, calling it 'delightful and innovative,' and stating that 'in its careful consideration of constructions and expressions of feminism in various forms of Archie narratives and paratexts, it serves as an excellent model of how to do transmedia studies.'"
