Bio/Research

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 am also an avid runner, spouse and dad and can sometimes be naively optimistic.

My research and teaching are based in the areas of visual culture studies, visual communication, and sport studies. I am primarily interested in critical analyses of photography, specifically how the image is used as evidence across a wide range of social and institutional practices. My current work looks at the intersection of sport and surveillance, from satellites to wearable fitness tracking devices.
