I am an adjunct professor in the Central and East European Studies Program. A La Salle alumnus, I thoroughly enjoy mentoring students of the program in the tradition of the school. While teaching has become, with the passing of years, a part-time occupation, it has always been my full-time profession. I consider it a privilege to help prepare aspiring civil servants, teachers and academics. My decades of experience on-the-job have helped prepare me to guide fellow Explorers in international studies and intelligence & policy issues of Central and Eastern Europe.
