After meeting me, you'll find out more about my journey from Alaska to Maryland and how I survived. You'll come to understand how unprepared I was for humidity, poison ivy, and rattlesnakes. If you experience classes with me, you'll witness my expertise in remix (culture jamming & mashing movies together); transmedia storytelling; social media branding; pataphysics; and website design. If you take a class I teach, your dreams will come true and, for some of you, your wildest dreams will come true.
