About Jason Karpf

Jason Karpf: From college dropout to college instructor in a decade.

Give or take a few months, I accomplished this mission. By renewing my education, I turned experience in creative arts and sales into a career focused on public relations and marketing. I changed my life through education, and I have no intention of stopping. My learning continues as now I help others learn.

I teach in classrooms and online. I teach the topics I put into practice in my day-gig as a PR/marketing professional. I have held corporate and agency positions and have worked as an independent consultant.

I am “The Funky Adjunct” because when I’m not doing the above, I’m often playing electric bass, the expression of my musical education during my teens and twenties.

Looking forward to the coolest jam session–in class!

    A truly awesome teacher whose attitude is conducive to real learning, an attribute sadly lacking in so many education professionals today.
