I am a progressive-minded individual who teaches as a Professor in the social sciences. I'm originally from Burlington, Ontario although I have lived in Toronto since 2002. I work in post-secondary institutions teaching subjects such as popular culture, political science, media studies, and philosophy. I have degrees in Communication Studies (HBA), Political Science (MA), and Communication & Culture (PhD). I am long-time supporter of progressive social causes, and I have a particular interest in disparities in social power and how such disparities are manifested in different kinds of media narratives and mediated forms, especially regarding disparities in socioeconomic power.
