Occupation Professor Mathematics and Statistics at American River College
Location Sacramento, California
Introduction I did my undergraduate work at the University of Michigan, earning a Bachelors degree in Mathematics with a minor in Computer Science and received both a Masters degree in Mathematics and a Masters degree in Computer Science from the University of Colorado. For over 25 years I worked in industry managing IT departments for a diverse collection of companies before returning in 2003 to my original love: teaching Mathematics. Since then I have taught over 250 classes at 5 different schools, teaching nearly everything from Arithmetic to Calculus III. I am particularly interested in the intersection of technology, mathematics and teaching. I am currently a Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at American River College. I live with my wife, Ann, in Natomas. In my spare time, I like to read, travel and keep at least one finger in technology.
