Bible Studies

I've taught the Bible as Literature and Early History of Christianity at the University of Connecticut and University of Maryland. My MA at UCONN covered the history and religious writing from the inception of Christianity to the Reformation.

I have an MA from UConn that included Classical Studies where I taught Classical Mythology, Greek Culture, Roman Culture, Greek Tragedies, Greek Comedies, Roman Literature and Latin.

College Counseling

I served as an academic advisor and career counselor when I taught at Towson University, Community College of Baltimore County and Stevenson University.

Film

Many of the literature classes at Towson University were for multi-media sources, so half of the semester would be focused on film as text and visual source. Furthermore, I taught and tutored Introduction to Film at the University of Oxford. In addition, I taught two segments on directors John Ford, Alfred Hitchcock, and Peter Jackson.

Religion

My Masters in Medieval Studies included an in-depth study in early Christianity all the way to the Renaissance which included primary sources from the historical record such as early church councils, laws, papal see administrative records, church architecture and important persons and saints literature, which covered the Saints of the Golden Legend, the different monk and knight monk orders, and the male and female mystics.
