I currently teach business and project management courses at a college where I am known for converting complex concepts into simple and easy to understand practical exercises. I have an MBA, PMP certification, and an extensive background in business and IT project management. I also work with business start-ups where people have a passion to succeed.

Students say that I have excellent presentation and written communication skills and consider me to be a great motivational leader in the classroom. In creating online courses I use a straightforward approach to make students feel comfortable with the learning environment.
