In 2015, I received the University Distinguished Teacher Award, a recognition given to one faculty member each year from the entire Montclair State University community. I was honored and humbled, to say the least.

I am 100% passionate about my undergraduate courses which focus on wrongful convictions, the death penalty and criminal law and procedure.  Great teaching combines a mastery of the subject matter with a willingness to tackle tough subjects in a safe environment. I strive to create a classroom that is respectful of different perspectives, and that pushes students to think critically about the world around them.
