About Me, About this Site

me blue 3 Hello. I’m Jacque. Welcome!

On this site, you’ll find a collection of photographs, essays, reviews, and other items. A hodgepodge, if you will. Please look around and feel free to leave a comment (if you wish).

If you’d like to follow me on Twitter/ Google+, see links to the right of this post (if you do follow me, please let me know and I’ll follow you back).

I’m not especially keen on revealing much online, so I’ll keep this intro professional: I’m a former academic. I have a Ph.D. in English and have taught university courses in literature and composition (for details, you can visit my LinkedIn profile). After some time at various universities, I’ve struck out on my own. I am available for freelance research, writing, editing, tutoring, and consultation. If you would like to discuss a project, please contact me via email.
