I edit TECHStyle, an online forum for multimodal pedagogy and research by the Brittain Fellows at Georgia Tech. With Aaron Colton and Kent Linthicum, the TECHStyle Committee functions as an editorial collective to publish and promote the writing, teaching, and research of current and former Brittain Fellows.

Multimodal composition practices and teaching methods are at the heart of our work as Brittain Fellows at Georgia Tech, from our programmatic textbook WOVENText (the WOVEN acronym stands for Written, Oral, Visual, and Electronic modes of communication) to our public-facing document design and research. TECHStyle promotes and celebrates this work.
