The Professor

I have been teaching college courses in Mass Communications for 14 years, ranging from classes in photojournalism, to media writing, social media applications, video production and website design to name just a few. I believe in the learning by doing philosophy as well as learning with technological simulations in conceptual courses, rarely through route learning.  Advising is central to my philosophy of work as an educator. 

I am a professor who believes in wearing a tie and serving as a role model in media to my students. I never ask them to do anything that I haven’t done it. I care and always will because to me at least, a professor is to assist his pupils with developing themselves as both professionals and human beings. Having a caring personality assists a lot with the former, I must add. 

Teaching Awards

To me, the biggest award that a professor can receive is the confidence of his or her students. I’m so grateful for having the privilege to work with a number of college students from a wide variety of backgrounds, especially African-Americans coming from low income (at risk) households. 


The award on the left is one of the two awards i received this academic year 2021-2022, from PRNEWS for my work done at Talladega College and Claflin University, both institutions being Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).  The award on the left is evidence of my teaching excellent when teaching students of color in HBCUs.  


I received, also from PRNEWS, the 2022 Outstanding Educator of the year Honorable mention in a ceremony at the Ritz Carton in Pentagon City, Virginia in a closed gala. I was a runner up for the award… 


Students are my priority and I take pride in guiding them to success in my field. My kids learn how to speak in front of the camera, media writing skills, how to produce websites and take professional photographs for campaigns, along with strategic ways to produce micro and macro social media content at scale.   


I’m a creative media producer  with personality.
