MEET THE TEAM

TOMMY DEMOS, MFA

Professor of Film, Television & Digital Production

On average he teaches 15 college-level courses per year, and has successfully facilitated 120+ college course sections since he started teaching in 2011.


Professor Demos holds Adobe Certified Associate badges in Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Photoshop and is an official Adobe Education Leader. Additionally, he is pursuing a PhD in Leadership which he hopes to complete by 2021.
