Chair of Communication, Associate Professor of Communication, Fellow in Catholic Studies
I am an award winning filmmaker and associate professor of communication. As an artist I work in numerous media but I find most comfort in non-fiction filmmaking — using my camera as a way to study the world and our place within. I have been working in academia in some way since 2007, but have been teaching at Mary since 2014. I am a life long supporter of Chelsea Football Club. I have been married to my wife Madeline for over 20 years — as of December 2021 we have nine children.
