Current Projects

Along with Kenn Bisio I am working on two journalism projects. One looks at the use of Instagram in photojournalism. The second is measuring how the journalism industry treats its heroes.

In addition, I am working with Sanjay Arwade, Ben Schafer and Delbert Schafer on a Structural Art project for structural engineers.

Teaching Philosophy

We learn from texts, we learn from instructors and we learn from our peers.

What that means for students is you need to come to class prepared and ready to engage.
