  • Tell us something interesting about yourself that your students might not know about you.

    When I studied accounting at Temple University, I became interested in acting. So, I registered for acting courses, in addition to my business courses. After I graduated, I continued to study with the Philadelphia Acting Company. I learned about the different roles that make a theater production successful. I really liked producing plays and musicals; subsequently, I went on to produce four plays and one musical. I had aspirations of working in New York and on Broadway. So, studying a discipline such as accounting can aid to producing plays on Broadway. I believe that a higher education degree can lead somewhere special; make it an inspiring journey.
