I teach a two-semester class on experimental media as part of our Department's foundation curriculum. I also work with graduate students, conducting, upon occasion, the Graduate Seminar as well as offering other graduate classes (directed readings/independent studies; a course on experimental writing/criticism). In addition to contributing programming and inviting guests to the Department's ongoing occasional screening/visiting artists series, I also direct the Milwaukee LGBT Film/Video Festival, which is hosted by the Film, Video, Animation and New Genres Department. Previous experience includes bookselling, various positions as a film curator. Book I am currently (Spring/Fall 2012) recommending: Michael Taussig's I Swear I Saw This: Drawings in Fieldwork Notebooks, Namely My Own (University of Chicago Press, 2011).
