Dr. Carey Martin has over 20 years of experience as both media professional and university professor.
Despite a demanding residential and online teaching schedule, Dr. Martin remains active on the professional side of media. Most recently, his award-winning screenplay, “Oh-fer,” was produced by Mirari Pictures, a Virginia-based Christian and family-friendly production company. The final production of the film, which Dr. Martin directed, has already won a national, peer-reviewed award for excellence.

During his spare time, Dr. Martin enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter.
