I am an Associate Teaching Professor of Philosophy at Florida International University in Miami, Florida. My full bio can be found here.
I write about cultural heritage (such as ruins and historic buildings), tourism, environmental aesthetics, perfume, and cinema. Please see my research tab for a list of publications.
I am a self-professed failed musician and quasi-successful film buff. I spent eight years as a volunteer 35mm projectionist and outreach coordinator at the Grand Illusion Cinema in Seattle, Washington and was the manager at the Clinton Street Theater in Portland, Oregon (the longest continuous running Rocky Horror Picture Show in the world!). Before becoming an academic, I worked in audio post production. (IMDB)
