Expertise and Activities: 

In addition to teaching, I am the supervisor of the department's technical support staff. My primary interest is in film and video production. I am an active filmmaker and have participated in just about every type of film production there is: independent films, music videos, documentaries, experimental films, commercials and Hollywood feature films. My early films were experimental documentaries, and I am now interested in low budget independent filmmaking. I am working on a script for my next film Hardwood, Hardcore, a period film set in 1983 that explores the worlds of hardwood floor sanding and hardcore punk rock.
