Academic Specialization/Focus at CTU

Homeland Security and Emergency Management

Why are YOU IN?

I am “IN” because I strive to inspire students to achieve and excel in school and life by sharing, showing and engaging in the professional applications of theory to practical through experiences of the student and faculty. To expand horizons and learn.

What is your teaching philosophy?

The academic experience at CTU mirrors the professional world of Homeland Security and Emergency Management by immersing the student into real-world scenarios. Learning incorporates interacting with fellow students, working in group projects, and developing communications skills to support professional skills. Engagement holds the key to success.

Aside from higher education, what else are you passionate about?

Enjoying the great State of Florida, driving my Vette in the sunshine, and my family (my wife, Dawn and I have been happily married for over 30 years and have two adult children.)
