I am a documentarian and media professor living in my home state of Minnesota. I received my BA in American Studies and Film Studies from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, and my MFA in Radio, TV & Film from the University of North Texas, Denton. I have taught for more than a dozen years at various institutions since then while continuing to work on docs and other projects.
I consider myself a student and interpreter of history, which is reflected in much of my work. I believe the past is our best guide to the future because the more you understand its lessons, the more you can apply them to similar situations. As Mark Twain once purportedly said, “History does not repeat but it does rhyme.”
I have become particularly interested in fake history, i.e. conspiracy theories, and the danger that this mindset posses to society. Both my documentary on Nazi Germany, You don’t know Hitler (2006), and my look at the JFK assassination, Conspiracy Theorists Lie (2015), deal in part with this topic; as do several pieces I have written.
