I am an associate professor of Sociology and the coordinator of the LGBT Studies program at Kent State University.  I primarily teach in the Master’s program in Criminology & Criminal Justice, where my focus is in Victimology and diversity. My scholarly work utilizes documentary video methodologies—in other words, I make movies.  I currently serve on the Executive board for the Ethnografilm Festival and on the editorial board for the Journal of Visual Ethnography. I also am on the national advisory committee for Expanding the Circle and am a member of the Oral History Association.
