Academically, I am primarily interested in our complex relationship with mass media and popular culture. As a digital communications professor, challenging and encouraging students to become fully active and critical consumers and producers of media (in all forms) often takes center stage in the classroom.
Creatively, I work mostly with video – either through an experimental lens or from a traditional narrative perspective. While not all of my creative work is related to my academic research, some of it is, as I believe an ongoing fusion of theory and practice is key to the learning process, be it inside or out of a formal learning environment.
