LIU honored me with this Newton Award for excellence in teaching in 2012.

My work as an educator lies squarely at the intersection of media, journalism, communication, cultural studies, political science, and sociology.

I have developed and taught interdisciplinary courses spanning the humanities, liberal arts, and social sciences. This includes topical seminars on social media and social change; the environmental impacts of digital media; fake news and political satire; the rise and fall of network television; digital retreats and analog revivals; and critical news literacy.

Here’s a select list of my current courses at Linfield University:

  • Introduction to Media Writing
  • Principles of Journalism
  • Principles of Public Relations
  • Living in a Media World
  • Food & Wine Writing
  • Multimedia Storytelling
