I am a Visiting Assistant Professor at the School of Literature, Media, and Communication at Georgia Tech, Atlanta, and an Adjunct Professor at the School of Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada. My primary research interests are how we create meaning for ourselves through "Technologies of Representation" and "Narrative Across Media" including Digital Narrative. I'd like to encourage more exploration, innovation, and a better range of stories in digital narratives and video games, in particular for children. I have a Fine Arts degree from Concordia in Montreal, a Masters in Professional Writing from Kennesaw State in Atlanta, and a PhD in Digital Narrative from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. Before I returned to graduate school in 1999, I was a designer and communication consultant in Toronto, Edmonton, and Calgary for more than twenty years. Besides these cities, I've lived in Montreal, London, Champaign/Urbana, and currently share my time between Atlanta and Vancouver.
