Writing for DomLife.org, he says, "I like to write with perspectives for the preacher, teacher, or pastoral minister in mind. Film is a powerful medium for expression which is accesible to just about everyone, especially with the easy availability of DVD's, Videotapes, movie channels, etc. I think we as Dominicans should be open to looking at them critically, and not just for entertainment sake. "
