Hey there!

Welcome to my little digital writing corner, where I reflect on research, writing, and learning. You will find some half-baked ideas as I work through research, along with reflections that suggest years of revisiting, rethinking, and revising. Feel free to connect and engage through the comments. Thanks for visiting. I look forward to hearing from you!

About Me

Hi, I’m Riki–a word nerd, artist, and explorer who is passionate about how we find connection and belonging in the world through communication. I’m an Associate Professor at University of Washington Tacoma where I teach about research, writing, digital rhetoric, visual rhetoric, and writing through comics. I also consult about digital communication and online dating. Need help with your dating profile?
