Matt Schnackenberg received a PhD in Rhetoric and Composition from Washington State University. In his scholarship he pursues pedagogy in public speaking and composition, application of ancient rhetorics to contemporary contexts, and cultural reception of comic books (he has written about Captain America, but his favorite to read is Hellboy). His personal interests range from good espresso to bad spoken word poetry, and recently he has begun to learn yoga, which is really hard.
