I have been writing books, articles, and software since the early 1970s. I have been running my own software business since 1978.

I have classroom teaching experience. I have designed and written an elearning system.

My course design goal is to focus on simple principles and dear explanations to give you the best learning experience possible with the least amount of effort on your part. My goal is to help you understand the material in such a way that you can then turn and teach it to others, if you desire to.
