I attended undergraduate school at Suffolk University in Boston, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminology and the History of American Law.

Moving on to graduate school at American Public University in Charles Town, West Virginia, I earned a Master of Arts degree in Criminal Justice.


During my police career, I was fortunate to have been selected to attend Northwestern University’s School of Police Staff and Command in Evanston, Illinois, earning an academic certificate in Executive Law Enforcement Management.


Teaching Statement

The application of pedagogy undoubtedly varies among the most talented collegiate professionals. What is the optimal instructional method within a particular discipline? This answer continues to elude us; however, our desire to put forth our most arduous efforts when teaching those who aspire higher knowledge never wavers.

I inspire discourse, in-depth discourse that ignites the most silent among students. We learn through comprehension, rather than temporary memorization. We learn from each other, listening to varying and opposing perspectives that open the mind to potential innovations never imagined. I question, question, and question, offering further exploratory contemplation that shall never cease.

Student-specific grading feedback is an imperative ingredient. We must guide our students through detailed lessons of improvement. There is no place for generalized grading feedback within the collegiate environment.  

My students conclude each course with the realization they can indeed achieve their most desired goals through hard work, coupled with unwavering determination,

while their minds never cease grasping upon new insights

 well into their chosen careers.
