Before arriving in 2006, I was a full time journalist for 27 years. I hold a master's degree in telecommunications management from Michigan State University and a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Kansas.
Besides teaching at UNL, I have taught multimedia reporting courses at the Kosovo Institute of Journalism and Mass Communication in Pristina, Kosovo.
