Story
Tagline
Educator, app developer, technologist, and photographer.
Introduction
I am currently an Instructional Designer/Coordinator of Online Initiatives at the University of the Pacific.  I began my career as an English Instructor then moved into the computer department teaching database design.  I've managed a tutoring and learning center, was the Registrar at a small college, and was a Systems Analyst over an 11 campus system.

I am currently researching the way that data mining could transform the way schools use unstructured data for course and program improvement as well as developing strategies for using technology to increase collaboration among faculty.

A very short animation I made loosely inspired by Shakespeare's "The Tempest." I made it using a combination of old photographs and medieval woodcuts which I then painstakingly animated over the last few weekends.

"How can teachers, in good conscience, implement a law that encourages them to teach in ways that are not supported by research on teaching and learning? ... Don’t teachers have an obligation to resist policies like these?"
