      Subject: [americancomm] Hello ACA!

      I am honored to join ACA!


      As a student enrolled in a unique “University High School” program, I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaig (UIUC) in 1984, with several honors and a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences/Speech Communication/Pre-Law. While a student at UIUC, I fell eternally in love with radio and vocal production. In 1982, I founded and managed WBML radio station. I also worked as a vocal production talent for WPGU. My political writing passions evolved from my stints as a features columnist and night manager for UIUC’s campus newspaper, “The Daily Illini”.
      In 1984, I honed my legal debate skills and became a popular and intellectual talk radio personality. From 1989 to 1996, I produced and hosted numerous radio shows in Atlanta,Georgia at WRFG, WIGO, and WGST. In 1992, I began penning award winning, ultra liberal, political columns for various magazines and web sites. From 1996 to 1998, I produced and hosted radio shows in Berkeley, California at KPFA, KPFB, and KFCF.
      My media posts have always complimented my diverse corporate lives. During my media careers, I have been simultaneously employed as a sales consultant, executive assistant, long distance commercial truck driver, courier, teacher, and corporate trainer, and college instructor. My past employers include: FedEx, Continental Airlines, Pacific Gas & Electric Company, the Internal Revenue Service, Southwestern Bell Wireless, and Alltel.

      In 1999, I relocated to Little Rock to earn a Master of Arts degree in Interpersonal and Organizational Communication at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR). In 2002, I became an instructor for the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office. I worked with Mark Pryor and Mike Beebe as I traveled solo within 25 Arkansas counties. I trained police officers, attorneys, and children of all ages regarding abducting, prosecuting, and combating child predators, respectively.

      I began formally teaching young children in Arkansas in 2004. In 2006, I completed the Non-Traditional Teacher Licensure Program at the Arkansas Department of Education. I am currently teaching Human Communcation to adults...

      I have earned numerous academic and occupational honors including:
