In today's complex, mind-boggling world of global affairs, foreign policies, and politics in general, we all need sound, intellectual, yet simply articulated explanations and analyses.
I address compelling issues in global politics, plus I offer career counseling for prospective students of any age in the field and subfields of Political Science.
I have years of teaching, researching, and writing experience within the United States as well as overseas. As an American teaching overseas, I've had a unique multicultural perspective in and out of the classroom. I have taught at the American University in Cairo, Egypt; I was the Director of the International Studies program at Arcadia University, Glenside, Pennsylvania; I teach a graduate online course for Norwich University, Northfield, Vermont; and currently I am an Associate Professor at the US Naval War College, Newport, RI.*
