I'm an Instructional Technologist for the Academic Technology Division of DoIT at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. I design online and blended learning courses, and work as a consultant for instructors transitioning their courses to online learning environments. I have a Master's degree in Theatre and Drama research from UW–Madison, where my focus was on participatory performance in virtual and augmented realities, and interactive theatre for youth. Prior to Academic Technology I worked in graphic design and K-12 arts education, most recently as a consultant for the UW DesignLab, and as an active-learning designer for the Overture Center for the Arts OnStage program. In the past I've lead some video games and learning activities in libraries, and worked as an actor and tour manager for a number of theatrical productions around Wisconsin.
I'm interested in performances of control, power and surveillance in networked societies, and production techniques using mobile interfaces and augmented reality. I've written a few things about this, and made a few of my own.
Hobbies include acting, video and tabletop games, travel, keyboards, chinchillas and archaic science fiction.
