Prior to that I was a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Annenberg School for Communication at USC with an active research agenda in English literary and cultural studies.

At USC, I provided writing instruction, in the form of workshops and coaching, to approximately 300 graduate students in the Master of Communication Management program. I was also responsible for designing curriculum and collaborating with other faculty members on course materials and lessons.
