Biography

I currently live in upstate NY, so I am not too close to campus :-)  I love teaching at Champlain and other universities.  I also have a full-time job as a Software Developer at Xerox Corporation. I basically write scanning and copying software for these really big, expensive digital copiers that Xerox produces.

When I graduated from high school, I enrolled at SUNY Oswego and received a degree in Computer Science.  Once I finished, I worked very briefly and then decided to get a M.S. in Computer Science from Binghamton University. I greatly enjoyed my college experience and would like to help others enjoy it as much as I did. I think learning online is a great medium and really enjoy teaching others.

In my personal life, I have been married for about 8 years.  My wife and I had our first child in April of 2008 and twins in February of 2010.  It is a ton of fun and I love spending time with my family.  I play in an Adult Baseball League, Men's Hockey League, and Men's Basketball league (Not all at the same time, of course :) ).  I also enjoy snowboarding, not to mention working/programming on computers (go figure).
