Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer in Emory’s Film Studies Department. I’ve been teaching at Emory since 1974, first as adjunct faculty in the Art History Department, then as a Lecturer with a joint appointment in Film Studies and Visual Arts. I’m an independent filmmaker producing both documentaries and avant-garde short films. My primary interest is in the history of avant-garde movements and their influences on technological media, including photography, film, and video. I also own Atlanta Video, Inc., a production company specializing in documentary and arts programming.  View full CV
