I am a professor of government. I am also the winner of the 2015-2016 National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD). I taught courses at Baylor, Texas A&M, and currently at MCC. I am also an international geopolitical consultant, professional speaker, award-winning educator, and former international security analyst in Washington D.C. I have been teaching for the last 6 years following a 15 year career in support of the United States Government’s foreign policy initiatives around the world. I am a multilingual and have traveled extensively around the world to more than 25 countries.

As a multilingual and Winner of 2001 Worldwide Language Olympics (Arabic skills), Monterey, California, I have had the opportunity to travel extensively in support of US government’s mission around the world. My cultural knowledge, linguistic skills, and religious and social understanding are well suited for the type of courses I can teach students about French and Arabic languages. Having a systematic understanding of the colloquial dialects, be they in French speaking countries or the Middle East allows me to be a great asset for students who want to become proficient in either Arabic or French.

Traveling and interacting with individuals in their language and from all walks of life, has taught me to listen to other opinions especially before offering my own. I teach my graduate and undergraduate students to do likewise. My commitment to education inspires students to learn and grow with dignity.

Teaching Government/Political Science courses is based not only on my academic background with a PhD, but also my tactical experience of over a decade supporting the US government’s foreign policy initiatives. This experience has provided me with insights and much-needed understanding of how the government works. That said, I give students more than a well-traveled perspective when drawing from my overseas experiences in addition to my academic background. I want to share my knowledge with students of all backg
