As a filmmaker I feel extremely lucky to be a faculty member in a position that serves two functions for me: firstly, I am able to make work the way I want to make it, to experiment and invent without having to worry about who is going to see it or how they are going to see it. I believe the work is richer and more honest because of this. Secondly, I am able to participate in a community, which is how I see teaching. I have over ten years of professional, technical experience that I am able to share with students in the classroom, but beyond this I am excited to be contributing to the Film Community at West Georgia, and helping to establish a film culture that expands on the classroom curriculum, throughout the University, and hopefully well beyond.
