About Me

Experience Summary

I am a career educator who has taught English and other Humanities based courses extensively since 1988. My primary experience is on the college and university level but I also have a high school and middle school background. The educational and pedagogical philosophy I hold is this: The ability to communicate effectively remains the most vital of skills and is crucial to academic and career advancement. It is with a sense of privilege and honor I teach and with a sense of urgency as communication skills continue to evolve in a quickly changing world. Technology is not a substitute for literacy. It is there as a vital augmentation of learning.

Teaching Style

Critical thinking is nourished so well-considered and studied opinions are more than welcome; they are essential. Students have conveyed to me that my style is one of "relaxed intensity" with a flair for the dramatic laced with a sense of humor and a genuine appreciation and respect for the views of others. Focused creativity is required.

My Hobbies

If reading can be viewed as a hobby, then it is perhaps my favorite. Writing rivals reading for me. I also enjoy beyond words time I spend with my eight year old son and my beautiful wife of nearly 20 years. I am a fan of tennis, golf and hiking and occasional photography, also.

Other Comments

The well lived life is the life that loves well the love of learning.
