I am an associate professor in the Mass Communications and Journalism Department at Norfolk State University in Norfolk, Virginia.  For nearly 30 years, I have taught university level courses at universities in Ohio, Washington, DC, New Mexico, New Jersey, Virginia and in the People's Republic of China.  I have taught a wide range of communication courses. I have taught courses in interpersonal communication, intercultural communication, advanced intercultural communication, international sojourning/study abroad, communication research methods, international media systems, public speaking, rhetorical criticism, communication & 9/11. intro. to communication, nonverbal communication, quantitative methods, diffusion of innovations,  organizational communication and organizational diversity management. At Norfolk State University I have taught intercultural communication, news/media writing, media technologies, digital photography, international/global communication, history of media and research methods.  At NSU I have also taught the intro to mass media, media technologies, international communication, communication theory and intercultural communication courses at the graduate level.  I am always interested in teaching new classes.  I'm currently thinking about courses in social media, media criticism, script writing and narratology.  See my CV for some more teaching details.
