A long-time builder of staffs and programs in the broadcast media, especially internationally, my career focus has been on utilizing and thoroughly understanding all facets of News and then connecting that News to constantly-evolving target audiences. My sense of News includes aspects of Public Relations and Communication Theory.

Research Interests

I have presented research on Eastern European Millennials' attitudes toward media (at AUDEM conference in Bursa, Turkey) and prepared research on proper approaches to teaching Journalism in post-Communist Eastern Europe (not presented due to illness).
