I'm a filmmaker and college professor at Queensborough Community College. I've worked as a performer, writer, director, editor (sound and picture) as well as teaching media history and production. Aside from film screenings and festivals, I have also presented at conferences such as the Southwest Texas, Mid-Atlantic, and National chapters of the Popular Culture Association, the Learning College Summit, the American Association of University Professors, the Neversink Area Valley Museum and the University Film and Video Association on such topics as blogging in the classroom, Alice Guy-Blaché, D.W. Griffith, The Libertines, Boardwalk Empire, film production pedagogy, and teaching diversity in early film.  I am finishing a documentary about the British band, The Libertines and their reunion fans on their reunion tour and working on my photography. I am also co-writing a book about film production pedagogy and writing a solo article about refining and diversifying the teaching of early film content and history for today’s audiences. I have degrees from Sarah Lawrence College (B.A.) and City College (M.F.A.). I have been teaching at media theory, film history, and media production at Queensborough since 2006. Recently, I completed work with the college and state on a new degree program in Media Production for the college, Film and Media Production (FMP).
