ABOUT ME

I am a visual storyteller by trade. That is my ultimate passion. The ability to combine my newsgathering skills with in-depth academic inquiry results in a valuable blend of literary and visual production. This fuels my research and my teaching. The power of the visual media has an ability to transcend boundaries and culture if done correctly. My goal is to be that transcendent filmmaker and educator.
