I’ve been teaching at Doane since the fall of 1998. Prior to teaching here, I taught at Metropolitan Community College in Omaha, and before that at Minot State University in Minot, North Dakota.
Before my teaching career started, I was in the industry, as a software test engineer at SAFECO Insurance in Seattle, Washington. Before that, I was an officer in the United States Air Force, flying with the 962nd AWACS from Elmendorf AFB, Alaska.
My undergraduate work in computer science was at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, in Terre Hatue, Indiana. My graduate work was at the University of Idaho. I studied evolutionary computation, under Dr. James A. Foster.
Other than computer science, I’m interested in robotics, home brewing, ATA Taekwondo, and really, really, bad movies.
