About Me

"Education is what you make of it." -- Me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Division of Information Technology & Sciences at Champlain College in Burlington, VT.  I also have two projects: The Technology & Pop Culture Project and WordSnapper, a C++ text mining application.  I am also a regular reviewer for the academic journal Syllabus.

By education and trade I am a programmer and engineer.  My academic interests are interdisciplinary.  I am a technologist who chooses to think critically about technology and encourages others to do the same.
