Bio

I spent most of my now longish life producing content for public broadcasting. In the course of that career, I have produced television programs on a vast array of subjects. Each of these programs gave me considerable knowledge of the subject matter of the program.

I spent most of my now longish life producing content for public broadcasting. In the course of that career, I have produced television programs on a vast array of subjects. Each of these programs gave me considerable knowledge of the subject matter of the program. My intent on going off to college was to be a music major, but I graduated with a degree in television production, spent many years as a television engineer before becoming a program producer director at the national level. I'm knowledgeable and comfortable teaching a wide variety of both technical and arts subject matter. I spent much of my career working on computer platforms, using productivity tools, and watching the digital world develop from infancy (when I began my career, electronic devices had tubes) I am also of an age where demonstrating competent communication including vocabulary and grammar were mandatory. As you might suspect from a professional communicator, my ability to teach reading, writing, composition, grammar and syntax, as well as literature is very polished.

I currently teach communications courses at the college level, but would feel comfortable working with a range of students beginning in junior high school through graduate school. I believe that learning should be fun (in fact I believe all of life should be fun, but that's another story…) and I have developed a wide bag of tricks to help communicate information to students with the minimum part of frustration for either of us. I have a 30-year-old child with Asperger's syndrome who was partially homeschooled, so I am pretty conversant with students who have issues that interfere with learning process although I would not characterize myself as a special education teacher. If you are looking for someone who can use a variety of tools to meet the student where they are and take them where they need to be, contact me and let's talk about your situation. Come on, it won't hurt a bit, and I've had all my shots.

Public Speaking

I have over 45 years experience in public broadcasting, as a program host, public speaker, professional fundraiser, and performer in entertainment formats On both radio and television. Additionally, I am an instructor of communications courses at Tompkins Cortland Community College, a division of the SUNY system. I have vast experience hiring, evaluating, and coaching on-air talent and development people who do public speaking community groups such as Rotaries, Lions clubs etc. Earlier in life, I was a music major who had private voice lessons from the age of 13 to 18 which included voice control, diction, breath control and many other aspects of vocal production which are applicable to public speaking. I've also directed actors in several productions, and have been trained in oral interpretation.
