PROFESSOR

IMG_3629.JPG

I’m a veteran university professor and administrator, teaching classes and becoming dean of a college of business. It is where I learned the craft of writing effectively and teaching well.

 

I absolutely loved this vocation for it took me places and introduced me to students from all over the world. For example, I was present with thousands of Hungarians celebrating in front of Hungary’s Parliament when it declared itself a democracy and left Socialism behind.  

 

I was also rewarded by appreciative students, and by many awards and recognitions. Some students exaggerated calling me “God at UNM.”
