Short Bio

I go by joey phd in the academic world.  My research spans multiple disciplines and methodologies.  I currently am an Associate Professor of the Practice at the Texas A&M College Station where I run a Media Lab in the department of Communication.  Our program spans research from intermodal art facilitation all the way to technology startup scenarios.  My work heavily focuses on the students and their potential to create.  Taking the simple rules of the ACTLab, my work is based off the following motto:  “Make Stuff, Take Risks and Be Awesome!”

Here are a couple of websites to check out for further information
