A little about me
I can only describe myself as an eLearning & Online Education Expert by Trade, Consultant in Practice, Educator by Profession, Entrepreneur at Heart, Mentor by Design, Christian by Faith, Humanitarian in Spirit, and Politically Independent by Virtue. I am also a student of world languages and religions.
I've had many professions and titles over the years. There are too many to list. However, three of my favorite titles is being called a son, a husband, and a father. Another favorite title is "cable man" because of the years I've worked in the telecommunications industry and because I actually was a cable man. These days I still work in the telecom industry as a consultant. I am also a full-time dean and an adjunct instructor at various institutions. In addition to teaching, I run a real estate development company and a consulting business. Lastly, I am a board member at two faith-based non-profit organizations, one of which provides reentry services for newly released prisoners. They also offer scholarships to students who wish to pursue an education in a STEM-related field and assists with humanitarian and disaster relief during national emergencies. I sometimes teach professional development courses and minister at the non-profit. I sometimes teach professional development courses and minister at the non-profit. I believe in giving one's time, talent, and monetary resources to help others, as others once helped me. It is the "love of humanity" and my faith in God that drives this desire.
I promised myself to write a book about my 30-year life and educational journey from the hectic 1990s and the dark 2000s to the hopeful 2010s and the sunny 2020s. I have truly died and was spiritually reborn. I owe everything to God.
From GED to Ed.D. and Ph.D.
It has been quite a ride!
