About me

Gender MALE
Industry Education
Occupation Educational Technology Faculty
Location San Jose, California, United States
Introduction I've taught in the Educational Technology department at San Diego State University and have performed as the Technology Coordinator for a large high school district in El Cajon. I grew up on the East Coast near Philadelphia in a lovely little town named Ridley Park, lived and worked in Washington, DC and received my M.Ed. at the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia. I received my BA in History Education at the University of Delaware- go Blue Hens!!- and had the special privilege of studying abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK). I'm a devoted but masochistic Philly sports fan who has been waiting patiently since 1983 for one of the four major Philadelphia sports teams to deliver the city another world championship. :: UPDATE! Not anymore! My Phillies are the 2008 World Series Champions!!!! Hooray!!! :: I find delight in life's simple pleasures including hanging out with my wife, dining at one of our favorite Phở restaurants and catching a good flick at the movies.
