Dr. Raymond Anderson joins the University of Guam as Associate Professor of Mass Media in the Communication department. Raymond was born and grew up on another island, the island of Jamaica, far away in the Caribbean. For the past 17 years he has lived with his family on mainland USA and he is looking forward to revisiting island life, but now on Guam.
Raymond has a diverse background with working experiences in marine sciences, business, communication, film and media arts. His love of the dramatic arts and helping Christian theater ministries led him to switch directions from his day job of managing Jamaica’s largest fish farming operation to completing a PhD in Communication and Media Effects at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He went on to teach at George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon. At George Fox, Raymond was instrumental in helping the Cinema and Media Communication major grow significantly into the vibrant program that now exists.
Raymond spent four years at Sterling College in Kansas where he developed yet another media program that included various concentrations including Cinema Production, Public Relations and Multi-Media.
He is an avid swimmer and snorkeler and would like to get back into SCUBA diving.
