He has worked as a screenwriter for Disney Feature Animation and other production companies, and his scripts for industrial and educational films have won numerous awards at film festivals. He began his social work career in 1993 and has worked in a variety of clinical settings, mostly with adolescents. He also enjoys playing the cello and performing chamber music with friends.
Professor Fast's current interests include the developmental process by which people come to be violent, as well as qualitative research methods and new education technology.
