I am assistant professor of convergent media at Southern Oregon University, where I practice, teach and research visual communication and community journalism. I am also creative director for Vico Images, a globally distributed commercial stock photography agency. As a scholar, I am best known for my research on portrait and fashion photographer Richard Avedon. I routinely teach Žižek in undergraduate media theory courses, and occasionally make headway with my students.
