What brought you to Brookdale?
I was invited to be a guest lecturer, then an adjunct, then a full-time faculty member.

Describe one or more of your biggest achievements as a Brookdale faculty member:
I have served as faculty advisor to Brookdale’s Criminal Justice Club for seven years, and I particularly enjoy helping my students achieve their goals as law enforcement officers.

Do you work outside of the college?
Following a 38-year career in the law, most of which was spent with the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, I also spent several years serving as a consultant on homicide investigations.

What would you say is your most memorable moment – or moments – as a member of the Brookdale community?  
Some of my most memorable moments are of helping students to obtain internships and gain admission to four-year colleges, graduate programs and law schools. I also enjoy our graduation ceremony each year.

What do you think separates Brookdale from other colleges?
Our outstanding full-time and adjunct faculty. We have one of the very best criminal justice programs in the state.
