Computer science was my first love and teaching in higher education became my second. I have my doctorate in Higher Education Administration from Lindenwood University and my Masters in Career & Technical Education Leadership from the University of Central Missouri. I enjoy finding new ways to add technology to the classroom, motivate students, and help faculty learn from each other. For fun I scuba dive with my son, travel to see the world and tinker with new technologies such as crypto-currencies and 3D printing.
