Role and Company
Assistant Professor , The University of Texas
30 years experience in arts & entertainment
I am a journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin with more than 20 years' experience in the news business -- primarily in TV news. I left broadcasting for a PhD at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania in 2003. I teach journalism and I do research with the goal of helping photojournalists do their jobs better. I think of myself as a hybrid -- doing theory-based research, but with my feet on the ground of experience. Many of the photographers I worked with in TV are veterans, and the few vets I've had in classes since getting my PhD are terrific students.
