As an Adjunct Professor of English at California State University, Northridge, at Antelope Valley College, and at Saddleback College I have taught courses such as Freshman Composition, Developmental Composition, Introduction to Literature, and Critical Thinking.

Working towards my PhD from the Claremont Graduate University University, I have already completed all my course work, passed the required foreign language exams in French and Spanish, and passed both the qualifying and oral examinations as well. I do have a Master's Degree from Cal State, Northridge, with a double major--in English Literature and in Rhetoric and Composition, which is a formal Teaching Assistant program specifically designed to teach college-level writing classes. I won eight trophies in Public Speaking, furthermore, while attending one of New York's most prestigious high schools.

I also have a business background, having begun my business career with IBM Corporation, graduating second in my class from IBM's sales training program, which was ranked at that time as the very best of its kind in the world. I eventually became an executive search consultant in the Southern California banking industry. In this capacity, I have edited and revised literally hundreds of resumes for a wide range of business personnel, from Trainees to Presidents.
