I am an associate professor in the Department of Communication at the University of California, San Diego and a documentary artist. This is my CV.


I am a proud founding member and now Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of the AjA Project, an amazing non-profit dedicated to empowering youth in historically disadvantaged communities in the San Diego/Tijuana region.

I dream of opening a Bob Dylan karaoke bar — imaginatively conceived — on the US-Mexico border. 

I root for the 76ers and Eagles of my hometown, Philadelphia.


The most meaningful labor I've engaged in was coordinating a campaign to free my brother and two of his friends from their unjust detention in Iran.
