Biography

I teach video production and related subjects, both on the graduate and the undergraduate level. I am also the faculty adviser for the Communication and Digital Media Association, oversee the Production Equipment Check-Out facility of the School of Human Sciences and Humanities and serve on the committees for Academic Honesty and Faculty Leave. I hold an M.F.A. in photography and digital media and a B.A. in broadcast journalism and TV production, both from the University of Houston. I also have the equivalent of an M.A. from the Ludwigs Maximilians Universtaet in Munich in linguistics and literature.

I have worked in many areas of TV and video production, nationally as well as internationally. I am a video artist and make short and long format documentary films. I explore the subtleties of human perception, in my documentary work I mainly focus on cultural and environmentally related subjects. I also create video-work on commission. I have extensive teaching experience on the college and high school level as well as in the corporate environment teaching video production and digital media, traditional and digital photography, web design, English, ESL, and German.
