Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

I received my PhD in Visual and Cultural Studies from the University of Rochester in 2003. I completed an MA in Art History at York University in 1997 and a BA (summa cum laude) in Art History at McMaster University in 1995. I have been a faculty member at Laurier since 2003.
I am also a spouse, a dad, an uncle and an avid - if not obsessed - runner.
My research and teaching are based in the areas of visual communication, visual culture studies, and sport studies. I recently finished a book on the history of the photo-finish in sport and am developing a new research project on self-tracking and fitness.
I am willing to supervise graduate students in the areas of visual culture, visual communication, sport studies and surveillance studies.
