I'm a cultural anthropologist interested in information society and globalization, primarily in the United States and Korea.  My M.A. and Ph.D. are from American University in Washington, D.C.  Before I became a professor at Towson University, I taught at Dongseo University in Pusan, South Korea.   During 2006-2007, I spent a Fulbright year at Kookmin University in Seoul, and, during a Fulbright in 2014-2015, at Hanyang University in Gyeonggi-do. My online CV.  You can also see my profile on the academic social networking site, academic.edu. ​​Finally, I blog frequently on anthropology, science fiction and the future at All Tomorrow’s Cultures.
