Resurrecting Now and the Next

By |August 8th, 2018|Wordpress|

In 2012, I built a simple one-page website for an event that was being held on campus. I was just getting my WordPress designer sea legs under me, and was pretty enthralled with the idea of the “one-pager.” The title for the event was “The Now and the Next” and it was about engaging early […]

Hiking Val di Funes with the Bava

By |July 11th, 2018|Uncategorized|

This one is a tad overdue but better late than never! As I mentioned in my last blog post, I had quite an enjoyable experience teaching abroad in Arezzo, Italy. One of the perks of the trip was an independent travel weekend where we had the opportunity to head north to visit my good friend […]

Teaching in Arezzo, Italy

By |June 28th, 2018|JMC, Teaching|

My biggest regret as an undergrad is that I never studied abroad. Now armed with a steady job and a family, I realize how improbable it is to simply pick up and temporarily spend a significant length of time in another part of the world. Earlier this year I was asked if I had any […]

Man walking with work clothes and brief case in hand.
This is my first full week back to the office and I am feeling great so far. I have a lot of catching up to do, but after that I’m looking forward to planing the upcoming semester! One special thing that’s happened this week is Adam invited me to be on his and Ralph’s Media and […]

Using Twine to Build My First Game

By |May 17th, 2018|Uncategorized|

Link: My Twine Game Almost two years ago, Keegan Long-Wheeler and John Stewart started a faculty learning community here at the University of Oklahoma called eXperience Play that focused on educational text-based games. In some ways, it was a sequel to a similar FLC focused on game-based learning titled GOBLIN, but XP was focused more […]

Feeling Blessed And Loved, Even With Residual Tumor In My Head

By |May 14th, 2018|cte|

Coral pattern underwater that looks like a brain.
Last week was a big week for me. I finally got the staples removed from my head! (Read more about this in my last post.) But more importantly, I got the pathology results from the neurosurgeon. My tumor was benign rather than malignant. That means I won’t have to receive radiation at this time. (WAHOO!) […]

My Podcasting Workflow with Amazon S3 and PowerPress

By |May 11th, 2018|JMC|

I just hit the publish button on the season finale of Media and the End of the World. I have to say, it’s been a lot of fun to experiment with the medium from both a media and technical perspective. One thing you learn being on both sides of the production is your ticks. For […]

Chronicling My Brain Surgery

By |May 9th, 2018|cte|

Staples in my skull a couple weeks after my brain surgery.
I’m having trouble remembering all the details of my recent brain surgery, so I wanted to write down as much as I can recall. Here we go. What started out as a Tuesday night fever on April 24th had me in bed trying to cool down. Later that evening, I recall waking up in an […]
