Bio

I’ve been a writer and/or writing instructor my entire life, having done everything from technical manuals to entertainment reporting to a decade as a writer-producer in one-hour network TV drama. My two main fields are composition/writing and film/media studies, and I’ve taught everything from composition to research writing to screenwriting, from fiction to film studies to filmmaking to writing video games. When I’m not doing any of that, I hang out with my family, watch a lot of movies, and read a lot of books.

Pedagogy Reading Group

Pedagogy Reading Group

This is a low-pressure, asynchronous reading group. We don’t certify anyone. We aren’t doing workshops or anything official. This is just a place where we can slowly read and talk about pedagogical approaches. Each semester we’ll pick a book and work through it together. Or not.
