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.

This Project site is part of a Learning Community that connects the science of Biology with the issues, problems, and promises created by that science. We will explore the connection between the science and the real world, talking about issues like how global warming affects flooding and droughts, as well as how researchers ask effective questions. This site is where students post their research-based projects on climate change and genetics.
