About me.....

  • Professional

    I have over 20 years experience in IT engineering and project management with the U.S. Army and AT&T supporting enterprise clients like General Motors, Baker Hughes Industries and Citi Bank. I have responsible for the development and implementation of Information Technology projects and data center design and build out.

    I have over 9 years of experience online as an instructor of IT Project Management, Web technologies, scripting and programming languages here at ERAU and other colleges.

    I have also experienced the online format as a student having done coursework for my MS and DBA degrees online. I understand some of the challenges it presents.

  • Personal

    I live in Morrisville, NC with my wife, Sun. We have 2 grown sons that are serving in the U.S. Air Force. Prior to moving to NC, we lived in Korea, California and Hawaii courtesy of the U.S. Army. I received my Bachelor of Science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, my Master of Science in Information Technology from Capella University and received my Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) in Management from Argosy University.

    Something interesting not related to school would be our family's love of traveling and camping with Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Niagara Falls and the Outer Banks being some of our favorites.

Teaching Philosophy

Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.... Albert Einstein

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire....W.B. Yeats

The preceding quotes by Einstein and Yeats sum up my feelings on why I find such satisfaction in teaching. We are all put here for a short time and must choose wisely how we spend it. Whether teaching our children or the children of others, teachers make possible the march of civilization.

You can see this fire of knowledge ignite when your child reads The Cat in the Hat with no help or a forty year old successfully builds their first Power Point presentation. When that fire of knowledge is lit, it can not be put out.
