(Certificate in Interactive Technology and Pedagogy)  B.A. Swarthmore College

I study the impact of technological and cultural developments on cultural media and how those developments shape our society. To that end, I am currently in the midst of a focus gallery project that considers the design and materiality of digital interfaces and the role these interfaces play in shaping our experience of increasingly ubiquitous digital media. The exhibition will open at the BGC in the spring of 2015. I am also working on a book that considers the role that Disney and other corporate media conglomerates are having in changing the place of theatre in American culture, and how technological and legal change has hastened this transition. I also speak and publish about the implementation of interactive technology in academic environments and develop new pedagogical theory based on the use of such tools. In addition to my work at the BGC, I recently co-founded and am part of the editorial collective for The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy.
