Recent Activity  -


I recently earned a BS in communication with a concentration in journalism. I am now working on a MA in communication. At this point I do not know if I will pursue a doctorate. My original career goal was to be a Middle East correspondent. Over the past several years I have been actively involved with the Kurdish people in the Middle East and plan to work in those areas once I graduate. I have worked in maintenance and mechanics since leaving the Marines in 87. In 2011 I decided I had enough working jibs that had no meaning and living paycheck to paycheck so I enrolled in College. My academic goal is to become a journalist. My career goals are to work as a Middle East correspondent. I will be attending graduate school once I receive my degree this spring. Once I earn my Master's degree, I will still pursue my career objectives.
