Computer Science Instructor, Adjunct

  • Current Work At LMC:  While I have over 17 years combined teaching experience, this will be my first semester teach at LMC. (I'm really excited about it!!!)
  • Education:  I hold a Master's Degree in Computer Science, a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science with a concentration in Software Engineering and a Math minor. In addition, I have two Associate degrees from DVC, one in Liberal Arts and one in Computer Science.

  • Working Experience: I worked in and around the tech industry for over 10 years.  I've worked as a bench tech, system admin, version control manager, tester, and I've run a small consulting business. I worked for 9 years as a full-time lecturer at CSU East Bay, and I've been working part-time for DVC for the past 8 years. In addition to joining LMC this semester, I will be teaching two classes for Ohlone college for the first time.
  • Personal: Nerd. Absolute geek. Animal lover. Former hockey and football player. Motorcyclist. Wrote my first computer program when I was 8 years old, ran a fairly popular BBS service in high school, and now I'm hopelessly addicted to PC gaming. I'm studying Portuguese. (Bem-vindo, as todos!)
