Professional Profile

Lynn University has brought me great enjoyment for the past 11 years as it challenges my desire to educate and display myself as a role model and mentor to our students.

Teaching Philosophy

Mastering communication and production skills requires both theory and practice. As such, I stress focus on critical thinking as an important skill that will allow students to both create and analyze messages, and then execute visual and audible works to emphasize their research efforts. I am greatly rewarded when students reach the understanding and caliber of professionalism in their work, as I am able to use the tools and creativity of my professional works and experiences and watch our students develop.
