Since 2016, I have been an Assistant Professor and Director of Global Studies at Gardner-Webb University. Below is a list of courses I have taught at the university level, as well as various awards, duties, and a linked document containing student evaluations. In time, I hope to store syllabi and teaching materials here.

My teaching philosophy is built around my unshakeable faith in our students. I challenge them to tackle high-level work because they're capable of it. I'm honest and forthright with them at all times not only because they deserve it, but because it enhances student buy-in. I make my courses approachable to students from any background, often eschewing discipline-specific jargon in favor of a layman's focus on concept learning. Jargon is learned organically over time, and more approachable courses enhance student engagement and excitement for the subject. Finally, I try to keep things enjoyable because despite the seriousness of our subject matter, science can and should be fun.
