Hi! I'm Hannah.
I'm a Master's student at the University of Texas at Austin pursuing a dual degree in English (MA) and Information Studies (MSIS). My research interests focus on innovative ways that young women and teenagers create and shape language online.
I graduated from the University of Georgia in 2016 with degrees in English and English Education. While I was there, I co-founded a student activist organization and online publication, studied New Media and created for TEDxUGA, and worked with student-run theatre organizations.
From August 2016 to May 2017, I taught high school Theatre and English Language Arts, working with students as they made sense of the media and performance landscapes around them. Today, I’m an instructional designer with Campus and Community Engagement at Texas Performing Arts, a Teaching Assistant in the English Department at UT, and I also design accessible, meaningful print and web content for creative individuals and organizations.
All this to say: I'm excited about good stories and how we tell them best.
Interested? Check out all the details about what I’m up to and why. I’m also sharing a little more about my in-the-works projects. I'm always up for a chat about communities with big ideas (bonus points for West Wing references, of course).
Let's make something together!
