My interests range across 20th century urban culture - early film, literature, the visual and performing arts, and the confluence of modernism and popular culture (high/low). My work as an independent scholar, writer and occasional journalist have similarly rambled across these subjects. I have worked as a syndicated newspaper critic, reviewer, columnist, blogger, and editor for a variety of publications. Some of my journalism has been collected in books published by the National Gallery of Art (Washington D.C.), HarperCollins, University of Nebraska Press, Gale Research, and others.
