Academically, I'm a graduate student in the field of Communication. I've taught classes within Communication, including Public Speaking, Interpersonal Commuinication and co-taught a class examining communication, technology and society.
I'm fascinated by media, technology, law and culture. The point where any of these categories intersect is interesting to examine, and I believe that virtual environments (especially those with user-created content) are an exciting experiment-in-progress. Who knows what will happen? -Let's find out!
In my free time I enjoy.......wait a minute! I have no free time, as I'm currently working on my thesis.
Personally,regarding media, I enjoy producing music, learning After Effects (just the basics for now), and mixing electronic music.
I believe that people have an inherent need to share their culture with others, and that's why I think Creative Commons is amazing. People do create simply for the sake of creating and enjoy sharing their work with others. I mix ambient music released by others under Creative Commons licensing, and place the compilations on my website for others to enjoy. The artists appreciate the exposure, I enjoy creating the mixes and listeners enjoy the music- Creative Commons facilitates this. Stop by my website if you're interested.
If you're interested in discussing any of these topics, or care to find out more, let me know!
