Approach to Teaching & Learning:
As a faculty, I believe my role in the classroom is that of a facilitator of information and new concepts in the business field.  I like to challenge students by encouraging them to participate in classroom discussions and allowing them to express their opinions on issues.  I believe in the democratic and proactive system of teaching/management, thus, I often allow students to participate in the decision making process during the semester.  I am highly dedicated to bringing technology to the classroom.  I believe this is evident in my integration of technology in all my classes.  I am also a strong advocate of bringing the “real world” to the classroom.  I accomplish that by relating theories and concepts to current global developments and technological innovations.  I also, encourage students to keep informed by continuously relating assignments to current economic and world news

Hobbies:

I love playing the guitar, I also play the piano, saxophone and drums. I write songs and I do back vocals from time to time. I like playing table tennis as well.
