Searching for Jim Henson in Queens

By |October 25th, 2018|Uncategorized|

Over time, I’ve become fairly buttoned up on Facebook, meaning I don’t post too often. In fact, I’m probably more likely to blog than I am to post to Facebook. I find link sharing more conducive to Twitter and find Instagram a more favorable experience for photos. So, for something to be a Facebook post, […]

Visiting the Old and New of the New York Ad World

By |October 22nd, 2018|JMC|

I just returned from a weekend in New York where, alongside my colleague Debbie Yount, I had the opportunity to lead a group of 15 students to see eight different agencies and media companies in NYC. All credit goes to Debbie for organizing and our greater alumni network who helped coordinate the visits. I wanted […]

We Adopted a Dog

By |October 12th, 2018|Uncategorized|

Editor’s Note: I wrote this post back in July, but am just now publishing it. I believe I forgot to post I because I wanted to include a photo and I realized I didn’t have a “blog worthy” photo of Nala. I still don’t think I have one, but whatever I have is good enough […]

Saving Marshall

By |August 21st, 2018|Uncategorized|

The first guitar tube amp I ever purchased was a Marshall JCM 800 head and 4×12 cab. I was taking my first guitar lessons from a classmate of my dad’s, and my instructor had just bought a second JCM 800, an extremely limited release (600 total) Zakk Wylde JCM 800. I imagine it was a […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

A quick thank you to a colleague

By |May 7th, 2018|Uncategorized|

Yesterday, Mark Morvant, former executive director and my former supervisor in the OU Center for Teaching Excellence, publicly announced that he is leaving OU having accepted a position as the Associate Vice President for Academic Administration at Tarleton State University. I hope to not embarrass Mark by writing some version of a eulogy, but I […]
