Hi, my name is Eric. This is my second quarter in Highline and my first quarter at Writing Center. I love playing basketball, singing, listening to music, dancing, and working out. I also enjoy hanging out with friends and going to the movies! I'm easily satisfied and I'm grateful for my everyday life. By the way, I don't like cold and rainy days. My dream is to become a singer or a professional basketball player, which I think I'm not going to achieve. With that being said, I'm looking forward to becoming an engineer.

Avery Viehmann, Director

Avery
I’m originally from southern California, but I spent much of my life living all over the States until I settled in Seattle in 2011. This is my favorite place in the world, and I have the tattoo to prove it. I started teaching as a graduate student in 2007, and I got hooked on teaching and writing centers around the same time. I started working in Missouri State’s Center for Learning and Writing as a consultant, then an assistant director, and now I’m so excited to be the new director for Highline’s Writing Center. I love our diverse community at Highline, and I look forward to getting to know even more amazing people here! My hobbies include writing fiction, photography, and gaming. When not in the Writing Center, I teach English 91 and Writing and Reading for ESL.

Fun fact about me: I can have an entire conversation in memes.
