I have done sole curriculum authorship and teaching of ENG-9H, ENG-10H and Film theory and Production (VAPA). All courses are 10 credits and have been approved through UC College Board for high school credits. Most recently, I rewrote and had approved the ENG2X class to be designated 2H here at Bear River.

I have published a 150+page MA thesis and an article in the Journal of American Folklore (2004). In addition, I have written a 100 page annotated research paper, a 120 page production ready screenplay and a documentary video based on “Traditional Irish Ceili Dancing”. My first fiction novel, Time in a Bottle: the Resonance, was published and released for sale in 2011 on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
