Educator. PARTNER.  FATHER. ACTIVIST

​My research and writing focuses on representations of marginalized groups in the mass media and popular culture and the impact of mass media imagery on audience members. In addition, I am interested in exploring media representation of masculinities in general, and Black masculinities specifically. I am very fortunate to contribute to scholarship in communication, popular culture, and media. Below are some of my upcoming book chapters and peer-reviewed journal articles. If you cannot find the item via Google Scholar or your university library, please email me for a copy of the manuscript.
