Faculty & Staff

I’ve taught at SHSU for over 20 years, served as Interim Chair on several occasions and witnessed the Mass Communication Department – previously the Radio-TV-Film Department, and before that the Radio-Television Department -- evolve from the best teaching program in the region to a program that also produces first rate media research and first rate film & television projects.


Joined SHSU part-time in 1990 and have taught in the various iterations of the Radio-TV-Film, Radio-TV and Mass Communication Department every since.
