I am a Canadian who has recently relocated to Hawai’i. Currently I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Communications at University of Hawai’i at Mānoa.

My areas of teaching and research focus on digital cultures and game studies. I am appointed to the graduate faculty, please contact me if you are interested in games and are considering the MA in Communication or PhD in the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in Communication & Information Sciences at UH Manoa.

Before returning to university to begin graduate school I worked at an art gallery in the Lower Mainland (British Columbia).  My time at the gallery involved a lot of graphic design and herding of cats.  My artistic practice involved abstract experimental video art, and temporary painting installations.  For my BFA graduation project I spent a month sanding down the walls of the university studio space to reveal a floor to ceiling drawing that had been painted over years ago.  If any pictures of this piece exist out there on an old harddrive, I’d love to receive a copy.
