Welcome and thanks for visiting this site. I’m a writer focusing on the American screen and society. My books and articles explore how film and on television reflect and influence broad trends in U.S. culture. In addition to writing books, I also teach at a small art college in the Boston area, where I offer courses in film history and the social sciences.

I enjoy speaking about topics related to any of my books at libraries, colleges, and other institutions. If you would like to inquire about arranging a speaking engagement at your organization, please be in touch by emailing me here.

Thanks for visiting!
