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.

ENG1101CO Eng Comp Coreq FA2022

Every City Tech (and CUNY) student takes English 1101 Composition I, which features reading and writing assignments that will help prepare you for college and beyond. Together we will work on communicating effectively, building an argument, adapting your writing for different needs and situations, interpreting, and responding to a text, incorporating, and citing secondary source material. We will learn basic research techniques including library use. We will be reading pieces both for their inherent literary and informational value and as models for our own writing projects. Sharing your own ideas and experiences and adding your voice to our discussions will enrich our class community. The “Co” in English 1101Co stands for corequisite, which means that in addition to the English 1101 coursework, we will dedicate time to strengthening fundamental reading and writing skills. We will focus on enhancing vocabulary and critical reading skills, using step-by-step approaches to writing assignments, improving grammar and punctuation skills, and cultivating positive habits for college success, including note-taking and study skills.

My Projects
