My broad interests are audio media, interactivity, and questions of access to the global information infrastructure. I have released over 100 recordings of performers that range from B.B. King to the Tokyo String Quartet to the Seldom Scene to the U.S. Marine Corps Band. I am writing this semester about how the digital divide changes in unusual ways when we consider the role of "Nomadism." I am interested in the use of case studies as evidence. I am thrilled to be teaching my favorite course in the BECA Department – BECA Research Methods.  I’m also teaching a new-to-me class in how value systems interact with our storytelling and aesthetic ways of knowing – Seminar in Media Ethics.  I currently serve on the Ballot Simplification Committee for the City and County of San Francisco where I am responsible for writing the “a yes vote means” and “a no vote means” digests for all the San Francisco initiatives on the ballot. Be sure to vote! I am a member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and the International Communication Association.
