Division head, Pulliam School of Journalism; professor of journalism
Media law, broadcast journalism, videography, photography
There is a lot of overlap between the skill sets in public relations and multimedia journalism. Projects in my photography and videography courses allow students to explore stories from the roles they envision for their career.
Students often have some concern when approaching the first internship. My courses are grounded in real-world work experiences and are designed to prepare students to participate in the internship with the confidence.

Something my colleagues don’t know about me: I am a bit of a gearhead and enjoy sports cars and motorcycles. I also earned a third-degree blackbelt a few years ago.
