I have been in the technology industry for 15 years. I've served in a number of capacities over the years all dealing with technology. The area which has always brought me the greatest satisfaction has been teaching. The last few years have been spent working for ISA3 Systems as a technology expert instructor. My courses and fields of instruction range from hands on programming to user interface courses. I've been involved in the sales industry as well and therefor felt I was qualified to teach courses for Udemy. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Business from Loyola Marymount University and a Masters Degree in Technology from the University of Redlands. I enjoy teaching and look forward to continued enjoyment as a Udemy Instructor.
