I am an Associate Professor of Digital Media for Live Performance at the University of Iowa with a

joint appointment in Theatre Arts and Dance and I am a core faculty member in Public Digital Arts, where I serves as the coordinator for the certificate in Digital Arts.


I love teaching. I am available for guest lectures, workshops, and consulting. Hit me up.


By sharing my passion and experience with the next generation of artists, I provide students with the skills and artistry they need to succeed in the industry. In today’s rapidly changing world of entertainment, students must understand a wide variety of styles and media for storytelling. My teaching grounds students in the theory and fundamentals of directing in theatre and live performance (staging, text analysis, design), digital video, new & interactive media, digital art, AI, telepresence, VR/AR, and motion capture. I encourage them to explore novel ways to express their ideas and creativity through the integration and use of emerging technologies.
