Dr. Nigel Haarstad is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Communication and Digital Studies, teaching remotely for the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

On the weekends, you'll find Nigel out on the prairie taking photos of wildlife, biking, or anything else not involving a screen.
