He received his Ph.D. from Ohio University, his master's from the University of Memphis and his undergraduate degree from the University of Tennessee.

Review:

"An obvious advantage of the book's focus on the real-life ethical dilemmas of young professionals is that students can relate to people who are, in many cases, their peers. Just as guest speakers in classes often focus on their current responsibilities, needed skills, internship and job hunting tips, and career trajectories, the book's case studies include these kinds of insights as well." -- Wendy N. Wyatt * Journal of Mass Media Ethics * "Very impressive collection, nicely written, well edited, and very timely. Its greatest strength is the case selection. They're not the often-told instances of major wrongdoing; instead, they are precisely the kind of low-bore ethical challenges young journalists are most likely to actually confront. The work is very readable and surprisingly uniform in tone and style. It hits the right balance of gravitas and readability." -- Edward Wasserman "The overall concept of the text is appealing because students will relate to the experiences of recent graduates and they'll enjoy the storytelling quality of the narratives and the relative brevity of each case. Chapter authors do a good job delineating questions students should consider as they're grappling with the issues raised. It offers a good combination of practical tips and theoretical models to help guide thinking." -- Pam Fine "The book will be extremely useful in helping students confront ethical situations initially, and then think through them with a higher level of moral reasoning. I believe students would find this book very readable and engaging. At times, I could not put the book down until I finished reading a case. The authors built up a sense of suspense in how the case is resolved in many of the chapters. I think students will see themselves facing similar situations and also be spellbound." -- Shannon A. Bowen "I think the book's use of situations faced by young media professionals in their early years of employment is a terrific idea and I like its mix of cases that concern journalists, advertising and public relations professionals I was impressed with how seamlessly the chapters, though written by various authors, fit together. I was especially pleased to see chapters on such issues as Web analytics, use of social media, blogs and sources, and removal of materials from websites. These are increasingly important issues for our students." -- Lorna Veraldi "I feel strongly that the proximity of the experiences to the challenges faced by student journalists and rookies will cause my students to take the cases more seriously and spark critical thinking. My students would enjoy this book. They would like the fact that the cases were relevant to them. I thought the questions within each chapter would be very helpful to class discussions." -- Kevin Stoker
