Brad King is a teacher and author. An assistant professor of journalism at Ball State University in Muncie, Ind., he serves as the director of the university’s Digital Media Minor, teaching students of all types how to embrace the intersections between technology, storytelling, and real life. Brad is also the founder of The Geeky Press, a loose collective of independent authors — and he’s working on a book that has already been funded through Kickstarter.
