ABOUT

Welcome! I am a teacher, scholar, and writer specializing in food and media networks. In the classroom, my students use food and food media as a lens through which to critically explore culture and value-production. In my scholarship, I draw upon extensive experience working and performing ethnographic research on farms, in processing facilities, in restaurants, and in the food media industry to advance multi-modal methodology and multi-disciplinary inquiry as I examine contemporary food and media networks. My work encompasses peer-reviewed critical analyses, popular writing, and audio and visual multi-media projects that work to unite institution and community.  My goal is to continue extending the bridge between the academy and the broader public by networking students, teachers, consumers, producers, and mediamakers as we critically co-examine and co-create our food futures.
