Once In College
Did I mention that I graduated from Gonzaga College High School during my junior year at Catholic University?
After that I was an intern in the United States House of Representatives, made Dean’s List, & graduated with a BA in American History and a minor in Philosophy.
After college I became a musician & songwriter, which I pursued as a living for a long time. Then I gave it up, utterly.
Back In College
Currently I am an adjunct professor at George Washington University, teaching graduate, undergraduate and CE students in such courses as Interactive Web Design; Layout and Design of the Book, and Frame-By-Frame Animation.
Before that I taught courses in diverse departments & academic disciplines at the (original) Corcoran College of Art + Design. I was full-time Visiting Assistant Professor of Digital Media by the time I left the Corcoran, where I spent 7 years teaching in the BFA Design Department, the New Media Photojournalism graduate program, and the Art History program.
Before that I was a member of the faculty at the Catholic University of America in the Department of Art and the Department of Media Studies.
I own a web development / design business – now in its 18th year – and work with clients of all types and sizes.
For years I was on the board of the Gonzaga Carmody Open. Founded in 1985, the Carmody Open is a 501(c)3 organization designed to raise scholarship funds for fatherless boys to attend Gonzaga College High School in the District. In its 4th decade, the annual Carmody Open Golf Tournament has raised millions of dollars in scholarship funds.
