Employment Interest: Media Production Education and Administration.
Career Description: I am a Professor of Media Arts & Engineering, and a University Administrator. I have over 20 of years of experience. Personally I completed ten years of college education: 4 of these years full-time in graduate school, with the equivalence of a Doctorate Degree, A.B.D in Music Technology. As a professional musician, I have produced/directed a variety of choirs and stage shows from schools to churches, sports arenas and aircraft carriers, the “Hall of Heroes” in the Pentagon to Disney! I have contributed to over 100 albums in my discography, over 400 TV show entries, photography, graphic, video & film production credits. The Bachelors Degree Curriculum I founded, earned second place in America as “Most Innovative” at BestColleges.com. I produced the theme to the “Take A Stand” campaign, which earned an Emmy Award for the United States Department of Education on MTV. Erie Community College in Buffalo, NY, presented me the “Alumni-of-the-Year” award. Music Technology students at NYU presented me the “Professor-Of-The-Year” award. In 2010 the U.S. Department of Justice, presented me a lifetime achievement award, for “Promoting Positive Music” to our youth, in the headquarters of the National Drug Enforcement Administration. In October 2014, I was honored with the distinguished “Buffalo Music Hall Of Fame” award.
My college grads have made the Top of Billboard Charts, work at major Record Labels, Animation Companies and National TV Networks, and one recently composed the music for a TV commercial for a world-wide product leader. I taught courses in Music, Arts & Theater Appreciation at Kenmare, the “York Street Project” in Jersey City, as a special Media Arts producer. I inspired their first anthem and created a music video for them. I am interested in university academic admissions, communications, marketing and recruiting as well as stewardship. I will always have a passion to teach a course or two in Music, Radio & Video Production. My college grads now work at ABC TV, SPIN, Rolling Stone, TIME, NYC Radio Stations, Century 21, etc. They have received record deals with major labels. Two have received credits on #1 Billboard Chart placements.
