After working for the National Park Service and teaching in high school, I joined the E.C. faculty in 1976, and since then have taught a variety of both graduate and undergraduate courses. My principle academic interests include: Medieval Literature, especially Chaucer and Malory; Shakespeare, American Literature of the Twenties and Thirties, Native American Literature, and the adaptation of literature into film. In addition to my teaching, I have been the Chair of Humanities, the varsity Track Coach, the Coordinator of the Freshman Seminar Program, the designer and Director of the Freshman Writing Program and the Coordinator Sophomore Core, and have received the College's Josef Stein and McGraw-Rock awards. Over the last thirty years, I have presented papers at the New York State College Teachers' Conference, the Ohio Medieval Coloquium and the Plymouth State Medieval-Renaissance Forum, attended a seminar at the National Humanities Center, and have published in the College Consortium of the Finger Lakes Journal. In addition, I have sponsored twenty-five student presentations at Plymouth State. Off campus, I am a husband, father, farmer, and lector, and have been a school board member and president, a parish council member, a construction worker, and a community, travel, and high school soccer coach.
