I worked on a variety of projects, from research to teaching. I gained valuable experience with social sciences data collection protocols, data analysis and evaluation. I studied and employed both quantitative methods (econometrics, game theory, descriptive statistics and multivariate regression analysis utilizing SPSS and STATA) as well as qualitative methods (case studies and small-N research). I also taught a variety of classes including American policy, foreign policy and political theory.

Starting A Business
“Jack has taken on several contracted projects with our PD unit. He has supported our leaders directly and turned on a dime to meet deadlines in what were often unrealistic time frames. He has always committed to the work with cooperation and a friendly, professional disposition.”
STANLEY BOURGONE Global Head Professional Development, Middle Years Programme at IBO

I’ve been particularly impressed by his initiative in finding new opportunities for expansion and improvement in multiple facets of our organization, from publication to marketing strategies. Jack’s ability to successfully manage multiple projects has exceeded my expectations and markedly improved the productivity and content of our publication. Jack would be an immediate asset to any organization requiring someone who can think outside the box, find solutions, and contribute positivity.”
