I see all of my teaching, scholarship, social work practice and creative production as an integrated whole that are connected by a common ethos: social justice, education for empowerment, action, and reflexivity. This site is an attempt to catalogue the diverse array of projects of which I have been a part over the past decade.
My courses explore and interrogate the “helping” professions, welfare policy, and social research focusing especially on the complex interface between intention and actual outcomes in addressing social issues, such as homelessness, services for those with severe psychiatric disabilities, and early childhood intervention.
Collaborative, community-engaged, public, multimodal and often trans-disciplinary in nature, I have worked on a number of projects both inside and outside of the traditional boundaries of the university. More often than not, they occupy a liminal space in between. My dissertation research is a meditation on the professional legacy of a historical forbear of similarly collaborative, boundary-spanning work, social worker, researcher and journalist, Paul U. Kellogg.
