I am the division director for journalism and a senior professorial lecturer in the AU School of Communication. I returned to American University full-time in the 2017 fall semester. I spent two years as the broadcast coordinator and lecturer for the Department of Communication at Mississippi State University. Before my move to Mississippi State, I taught for two years as a professorial lecturer at AU. Before my time at AU, I spent 14 years teaching broadcasting and media writing classes at the University of Kansas. I taught one semester internationally with the CIMBA program in Paderno del Grappa, Italy, and conducted a two-week broadcasting workshop in Liberia, Africa. I worked as a reporter, videographer, meteorologist and sports anchor at TV stations in Kansas, Mississippi and California from 1985 to 1997. I also have experience working live sporting events with CBS Sports, ESPN and Fox Sports. In May 2016, I was the play-by-play announcer for the NCAA Track and Field West Preliminaries. In April 2018, I took a group of AU students to Puerto Rico to report on the living conditions seven months after Hurricane Maria struck the region.
