Academic Experience: 

Santa Rosa Junior College, Regular Faculty, 1984-present

The misty past includes a birth on a dark and stormy night in January 1950. Early experiences included horsing around oil derricks near my home in San Pedro. The majority of my primary and secondary schooling was done in South Pasadena, CA.(1956-1968.) My A. A. degree was earned at Pasadena City College in 1970. My undergraduate work was completed at Humboldt State College (1970-1974) with a B. A. degree in Plant Taxonomy followed by graduate work at Cal Poly, S.L.O. I earned my Masters degree in 1981 in Computer Science (MSCS). Two years were spent as an assembly language programmer at Tegal, Corp. in San Rafael at which time I joined the teaching staff in the Computer Science Dept. at Santa Rosa Junior College. I became the Lab Coordinator for CSL in 1995 and here I am.

Other endeavors include the starting of my software development group, Academic Product Engineers in 1997 and a second group, Nano1, Inc. in 1998. I also act as President of the Board for the Analy High School Booster Club, the fund raising arm of the high school.

As Dr. Laura would intone, "I am my children's father"! My daughter Loren is a Senior at Analy High School and will hopefully be at Cal Poly, S.L.O. in 1999. My son Dylan will be a Freshman at Analy this year.

Welcome to the 2004 / 2005 school year. As lab coordinator, I'll be participating in my regular day-to-day operations of the Computer Science Lab on the 3rd floor of Maggini Hall. Special projects planned for this semester are:

A. Continued development and instruction in Lego Robotics. The focus of these
courses is training in:
-> robotics design and implementation
-> development of problem analysis and implementation of solutions
-> programming languages Robolab, NCQ and C#


B. Development of new outreach courses:
-> Nursing Informatics
-> Bi-lingual technology training
-> Synchronous, on-line instruction

C. Work on National Instrument's LabView and LabWindows/CVI training programs.


D. Implementation of CCC Confer teleconferencing pilot project.


I maintain an "open office" policy which means you may drop in and see me anytime you have something to talk about. If you're coming from off-campus, you should call first to be sure I'm here.
