Justin Young

Writer/Movie buff that lives for the creative arts.

B.S., M.S. Murray State University

Though students may know me from my passion for film, video games and for discourse on new media, I must admit to always considering myself first and foremost a writer.

Whether it be scripting the films and cartoons I direct, or penning a satirical blog or comic strip — I find writing drives my work. My films and writing have been featured in various publications, ranging from College Sports Television to der Spiegel in Germany.

I′ve presented at a variety of conferences, including Southern States Communication Association and American Culture Association, on a variety of topics, ranging from the use of religious allegory in secular media to reaction to news coverage following Hurricane Katrina among different student racial groups.

While I enjoy my outside creative endeavors, I find myself at Trine because of my love for teaching.
