I have formally studied five disciplines which does not include some of the disciplines in which I have published. My interdisciplinary background is reflected in the courses I teach. In addition to my teaching, I do work as an artist specializing in photomontage.
I serve on the Steering Committee for the Liberal Arts Network for Development (LAND) and as President of the Michigan Chapter for the National Organization for Student Success (NOSSMi).
I am a strong advocate of student centered learning. My philosophy toward students is the basis for my most recent book on Promoting Student Transformation at the Community College: If Everything Happens That Can’t Be Done (HASTAC, 2020).
You can find additional information about me on my website as well as in my teaching blog.
