I am an Assistant Professor at Notre Dame of Maryland University, where I teach media and communication courses. My area of research is emerging media, ICTs, and global social change. I’ve worked in sports television production with ESPN, ABC Sports, and Fox Sports Net.

I use this site mainly as a teaching tool to archive materials and share information that I find interesting and relevant to media, politics, tech and society.
