About me

Industry Education
Occupation Assistant Professor
Location San Francisco, CA, United States
Introduction I teach writing for radio, television and interactive media. I secretly don't like computers all that much, and I really miss Pine. On the other hand, Twitter-bashers and SecondLife-haters and other types of cybersnobs make me mad. My current projects are an educational short-video series called "Marxist Dominatrix" and a blog about what a terrible Buddhist I am. I have a crush on Dwight Schrute and think that "Mad Men" is regressive and cryptomisogynistic (minus the crypto), but I still watch it.
