Joseph Campbell: Story By
Doubting Thomas started with the story of Joseph Campbell’s father, a black man killed in police custody. From that seed, he and Will McFadden created a story that tackles race in today’s America from an ultra modern perspective. Campbell now resides in Adelaide Australia, where he heads recruitment and athlete development for a basketball club in Adelaide, Australia. Prior to that, Campbell worked as a physical education professor and coach at a teacher training college in Malawi, Africa, where he earned the Presidents Volunteer Service Award. In Malawi, Campbell served as secretary at a locally-based organization securing international funding and partnerships. Before moving to Africa, he tutored the children of Hollywood and sport elites in Spanish-language and culture. Campbell continues to play semi-pro basketball in Australia, a career/hobby that has taken him from Venice Beach to the Malawi national team and courts on five different continents.
