A small introduction about my self

Ray Mikell

Political Science Instructor, Content Developer

Welcome to my work and resume site. If you have not visited this site before, it is meant to serve as a sort-of resume-plus page, with materials related to my career an adjunct professor of political science, as well as my more recent work in political science content development (for higher ed textbook publishers, primarily) and communications. I am based out of Jackson MS.

At the moment, my site is under maintenance. It will soon be getting a new look, via WordPress, as well as new graphics and content. Check back in three weeks or so to see what’s new. For now, my academic CV and all-encompassing resume can be found below.
