Academic career: I began my teaching career in 1993-1994 at the University of Arkansas, then resumed it in 1998 at Nicholls State University in Louisiana. I've taught broadcasting at several universities in the South and Southwest, including Ole Miss, Sam Houston State University in Texas, and most recently at Western Kentucky University. My specialties are in the fields of sports broadcasting, television reporting, and broadcast writing. I am also active in the Broadcast Education Association (BEA), serving as a charter member of the Sports Division and as a coordinator/judge of student sports entries for the annual BEA Festival of the Arts.

Professional career: I worked in television and radio for 15 years, as a TV videographer/reporter/producer in Shreveport, LA; Houston, TX; and Denton, TX: a radio announcer in Shreveport and Fayetteville, AR; and a baseball play-by-play broadcaster for a minor league baseball team in Shreveport, where I also produced videos and commercials for a production company. I won twelve broadcasting awards from various organizations in Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas, from 1982 to 1994.
