I am currently an associate vice chancellor of academic affairs at an HBCU and was formerly both an administraor at an HBCU and an adjunct professor of history and social sciences. Additional professional experiences include work in both public and private sectors. For numerous years I worked as a corporate middle-level manager with a fortune 500 company where I provided services to both vocational education and K-16 academic institutions, and was involved in leading edge programming that influenced public policy. I have written and managed numerous international grants and activities primarily focused upon renewable energy and sustainability projects, and provided consulting services to several international businesses, universities, and organizations. My interests span the areas of development including education, globalization, technology, entrepreneurship, and renewable energy.
