Prof. Tom Dunn, after shepherding the building and growth of our largest academic department, heads to Montana and retirement. He hands the reins over to Prof. Simon, who plans to expand our film and TV production ecosystem and encourage greater industry/alumni/student collaboration in large scale on-campus productions.

George hails from Michigan and has his BS and MBA degrees from JPCatholic. He and his wife Melinda, also a JPCatholic alum, have three young children and live in Escondido.
