Biographical Sketch:  
Spent time as an application trainer for Texas Instruments before becoming a full-time computer instructor for TJC/TCC in 1985. In 1999 received TCC SE campus' Teaching Excellence award, then in 2000 embraced Distance Learning and have developed and taught e-learning since. From 1998 to 2010 coordinated Creative Teaching Learning Cooperative events for instructional personnel; "CTLC", allows instructors to exchange ideas in social venues. Throughout the years became certified in several Microsoft applications and an Expert in Adobe Photoshop.

Feel that since teaching and learning guides the daily decision-making process, what better way to strive for excellence in an innovative way than teaching at a community college level. Helping others reach their potential is truly the reward and stewardship of being an educator.
