This site is dedicated to both the professional and student work I help produce at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Mass Communications.  Often my students do outstanding work that does not find and outlet, and this provides a platform for their efforts.  Please follow the links on the left of the page to see what our journalism students at VCU are capable of.  Please remember that all media on this site are the creative property of the students and cannot be reproduced for commercial or private use without written permission.   

About Me

I have been teaching at VCU since 2003, starting as an instructor and promoted this year to assistant professor.  My background is in television journalism and production. I began my career as an editor/photographer for KSFY-TV in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and then worked as a photojournalist at WHBQ-TV in Memphis, Tennessee. While there, I earned an Associated Press award for my documentary work titled "Titanic: Tragedy and Treasure." I then worked at WDSI-TV in Chattanooga, Tennessee and WXMI-TV in Grand Rapids, Michigan as Chief Photojournalist. I also worked as an adjunct instructor at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan before coming to VCU. I taught courses in broadcast journalism videography & editing, newscasting, documentary production and photojournalism. I have a B.S. in Broadcast Journalism from South Dakota State University, and an M.A. in Journalism Administration from The University of Memphis.

As you can see from the picture on the left, I am a proud father and not always proud Minnesota Vikings fan.  My daughter Maggie is one year old, and I am enjoying every minute of being a father.  I know someday she will be a teen-ager, so I am making the most of my time now.  Unfortunately, I will not be returning to VCU.  My wife has taken a job in Montana, so we are all moving there this summer.  I plan to be a stay-at-home Dad while pursuing my Ed. D at Montana State University (if they accept me!).  I hope this site will remain up for at least another semester so the work of my students can still be seen.
