I teach photography and video at DePaul University in Chicago, where I am currently an Associate Professor and head of the Media Arts area in the Department of Art and Art History. I hold a B.F.A. in Film from the University of Wisconsin—Milwaukee, an M.A. in Communication Studies/Film Production from the University of Iowa and an M.F.A. in Photography from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I work across photo-based media, including silver-based and digital photography, film, linear video and installation video. My work, which most often deals with questions of travel, place and history has been exhibited and published nationally. I have photographed in and done photographic projects on places as disparate as Greenland, Iceland, Italy, Norway, Quebec, Russia, Florida, Cedar Rapids, Iowa and Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. I have had one person exhibitions in Chicago, San Francisco, Cedar Rapids, Iowa and Lake Forest, Illinois. My work has been published in such journals as Harvard Design Magazine, Whitewalls, and dodgeCity Journal. I also have work in Zoomscape, a monograph by Mitchell Schwarzer.
