About Me

I marshal the middle between Mathers and McLuhan. I’m an aging BMX and skateboarding zine kid. That’s where I learned to turn events and interviews into pages with staples. I have since written about music, media, and culture for everything from self-published zines and personal blogs to national magazines and academic journals. I hold a Ph.D. in Communication Studies from the University of Texas at Austin and am currently a Professor of Communication at the Savannah College of Art and Design. As a child, I solved the Rubik’s Cube competitively.
