I used this biennial show as a sort of rough draft to work out some exhibition issues for a new body of work. Still working out the kinks, but I’m pretty excited!

Just found out that I was given some time off in the fall to work on research. Thank you Dean Depoy of the College of Creative Arts & Communication and the Professional Development and Scholarship Reallocation Award Committee!

Speaking at Point Park University (Pittsburgh)

By News

I will be speaking tonight at Professor April Friges’ Senior Thesis Class at Point Park University (Pittsburgh) TONIGHT about research, project ideation and development before meeting with her students for individual critiques.

I expect it will look something like the following (just to a larger group and in a room filled with more computers) — so in other words, NOT a lot like the following after-all! The following image is from a talk at Robert Morris University in October 2012.



Award !

I just received a letter from the YSU University Research Council at Youngstown State University stating that I have been awarded significant funding to help offset costs associated with an exhibition. Thanks, URC!

I was delighted to be a professional portfolio reviewer at the 2013 National Conference of the Society for Photographic Education, ‘Conferring Significance: Celebrating Photography’s Continuum’. I was able to view the work of some really great artists, including Deborah Orloff, Tomiko Jones, Mark Eshbaugh, Joshua Dudley Greer, Kay Westhues, and Dan Snow.
