Cinema & Visual Arts

I am a tenured Associate Professor in the Interactive Arts & Media Department at Columbia College Chicago.  As a filmmaker and visual artist, I am committed to the education and encouragement of next generation media artist as they move through our college and out into the world at large.  It's an honor and a privilege to be at Ground Zero for this re-imagining of cinema, art and visual storytelling.  As Internet distribution, digital image acquisition and social media broadcasting can reformat how we perceive the role of the content creator in today's society, I have a chance to learn alongside my students as they face the future.
