First Semester at Missouri Southern: Spring 2008


  • Ph.D., University of Missouri

While I have a Ph.D. in American literature from the University of Missouri, I had not been in the classroom till I was asked to help fill in for a vacancy at MSSU, first as a part-time adjunct, then a full-time assistant professor. I enjoy teaching both composition and American literature classes. In my personal time, I travel a great deal, spending up to three months a year in Europe and the Middle East. I am also the keyboard player in a classic rock band (old geezer music).
