I'm a Brooklyn based educator and consultant who integrates media literacy education into a variety of learning environments around the country. I am co-founder and director of The Media Spot, where I specialize in working with organizations, educators and students to design and implement curricula that align media literacy concepts with learning goals through 21st century forms of communication. I also work with schools and non-profits to create and maintain customized online learning networks, sharing all teaching resources, production notes, articles, tutorials, and archived student productions with the educational community through themediaspot.org.
Additionally, I provide workshops and embedded professional development to K-12 schools throughout New York City as an educational technology consultant with Australian United States Services in Education (AUSSIE).
I have a BA in History and Film Studies from Washington University in St. Louis and a Masters degree in Media Studies from The New School University. I'm an inaugural member of the editorial board of the Journal of Media Literacy Education; and I am currently on the board of directors for the National Association of Media Literacy Educaiton (NAMLE).
