  1. What classes do you teach in the Comm Lead program?

Future of Marketing; Visual Storytelling and Transmedia

  1. What is your teaching style and philosophy?

Not sure I have a teaching style, but my general attitude is that students in this program are here for a practical reason and I want to be sure they leave my class with some useful skills to take back to their professional careers.

  1. What has been your favorite non-academic work experience or job position?

My work gets me invited as a guest and professional at comic conventions. How fun is that?

  1. What’s your favorite class assignment?

In my Future of Marketing class, each team of students owns a different “scenario” (possible future). I really enjoy hearing how they craft those stories.
