Though he started his undergraduate studies as a computer engineering major, Andrew Delfino switched to English, where he graduated with highest honors. He also won the University of California, Davis’s Prized Writing Awards in consecutive years. While at Davis, he also wrote a popular humor column for the campus newspaper. After graduating, he taught writing and literature to junior high students in Atlanta, Georgia. As a teacher, he helped develop a new 8th grade writing curriculum built around blogs, wikis, and other forms of technology in the classroom. While living in Georgia, he also earned his Masters in Literary Studies at Georgia State University, where his dissertation focused on masculinity, gender, and sports in Post-Modern literature. Since moving to Maryland in 2009, he has also written a humor blog chronicling his adventures in his day job as a stay-at-home parent. Since Spring 2016, he has been one of the pioneers of teaching 393 as an online, asynchronous course.
