I am a professor at Indiana University in South Bend. I teach photography in a small art department. I travel a fair amount. I lead a study abroad program with a group of students from IU to Florence, Italy. I speak just a little Italian. I am also studying French now. I have been to many parts of the continental US. I am partial to the midwest and the Third Coast. If you are in South Bend to visit the Golden Dome, cheer on the Irish or their opponent, or for a specific research project, let me know. I am happy to host. And if I am in your town, I will look on this site first for a unique place to stay.
