Hi, I’m patrick.
Researcher of news literacy; journalism education and professionalization, ethics, and practice; and sex, and sexuality, particularly LGBTQIA+ issues.
Instructor of journalism, teaching ethics, law, and journalism and visual communication skills courses.
Former high school teacher, journalism mentor, and program director.
Champion for the voiceless.
I BELIEVE THAT EVERYTHING THAT CONTRADICTS CAN COEXIST IN HARMONY.
I am a Ph.D. candidate and the inaugural Easton Graduate Teaching Fellow in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Iowa. My work centers on finding a pathway toward more just and equitable futures in journalism and media practice. My time as a high school teacher and journalism advisor helped shape my desire to be a voice for the voiceless in my teaching, service, and research. Because of my years in the classroom, I bring a transformative pragmatist approach to my work.
