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 also adjunct 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 am a firm believer in the giving of one's time, talent, and monetary resources to help others. 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 sunny 2010s. It has been quite a ride!
