My professional experience revolved around political/economic analysis, editing, and writing. I was Director of Research for an international investment bank where I oversaw the production and writing of daily/weekly political reports. Also, I was the editor of a 300-page Investment Study on Eastern Europe in the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union, which was published in Japan distributed to clients throughout Asia.
For six years, I was a Research Associate for Dr. Henry A. Kissinger at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and a Research Associate for Europe and Africa at Kissinger Associates. My duties in these positions included:
ļ‚·Researched and edited Dr. Kissingerā€™s books and newspaper/journal articles,
ļ‚·Wrote country/regional political-risk assessment for Fortune100 companies, and
ļ‚·Wrote letters to Heads of States, and the Nobel Peace Prize nomination for Elie Wiesel to the Nobel Committee, on Dr. Kissingerā€™s behalf.
I received my B.A. from the University of California in Politics and Economics. I received my Masters in International Politics/Economics from the Johns Hopkins School for Advanced International Studies in Bologna, Italy, and Washington D.C.
My post-graduate work includes:
ļ‚·Harvard Global Seminar on Conflict Resolution in Salzburg, Austria;
ļ‚·Soviet Economic Reform Seminar in Moscow/Leningrad and Tbilisi, Georgia;
ļ‚·East Europe Economic/Politics at the Belgrade Institute of International Politics and Economics in Yugoslavia; and
ļ‚·Guadalajara Language Program in Mexico, and
ļ‚·Served as a US Air Force Medic in Southeast Asia.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with students and derived great satisfaction from helping them learn, and I think they enjoyed working with me. I have a flexible schedule to accommodate my students.
