I am a professional in media / arts with a career of over 34 years spanning both Industry and Academia. I currently work as Department Chair of the Motion Media Design program at the Savannah College of Art and Design [SCAD] in Savannah, Georgia. My work here spans teaching, program development and research project work – with a focus on exploring digital ecosystems, UI / displays and UX for industry partners, such as Fossil Watches, BMW USA, Microsoft Studios and Adobe Systems. My previous roles span academic management and teaching, creative direction and media production, from online video development to large scale media exhibits for visitor spaces. My LinkedIn profile has all the details here. On a broader scale, I am interested in the relationship between subjectivity and mass mediated experience, the theory and practice of large scale public media / spaces and the dominance of affect in contemporary media.
Montgomery Hall was built in the late 1800s – this 64,000-square-foot building once housed a carriage factory. It now serves as a Digital Media Center at SCAD. It is home to the Motion Media Design, Animation, Game Design and Interactive Media and Visual Effects programs on the Savannah Campus.
