Director of Communication Program, Associate Professor of Communication, Fellow in Catholic Studies
I am a professor of communication with a passion for interdisciplinary work. As an award-winning filmmaker, I explore the world, history, and the human experience. I believe film is one of the most influential art forms of our times and can deeply connect with our humanity. As a professor, I not only teach students the craft of filmmaking but also nurture their appreciation for this profound art.
My personal journey and family history have also cultivated a commitment to Holocaust and Genocide studies. The stories of my survivor family members have given me a unique perspective on this history and the challenges of Human Dignity in today's world. As a PhD candidate, I delve into the transmission of testimony across generations and its impact on the storytellers' identities.
Since 2014, I've proudly been a part of the University of Mary faculty, teaching courses in communication, art, and Catholic studies. Beyond my professional life, I'm a lifelong supporter of Chelsea Football Club, a musician, and together with my wife Madeline, we celebrate over 20 years of marriage and the joy of parenting nine children.
