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.

ENG1101 FYLC,FA2018

This First Year Learning Community includes CST 1100 (Intro to Computer Systems), CST 1102 (Problem Solving with Computer Programming), and ENG 1101 (English Composition I), and is designed to leverage all three courses to produce an Interactive Fiction game prototype and a Game Design Document. It’s all about story-telling — characters, their world, and their interactions with that world in a non-linear narrative of our own creation.
