more about me

Throughout my career, I have worked closely with faculty, staff, students and IT managers to design, develop and deliver technology-based solutions across departments and disciplines. I regularly embrace opportunities to experiment with emerging technologies in order to best serve adult students at a distance, and to create communities of lifelong learners.

Along with my current achievements in training, professional development, adult learning and distance education, I have over 18 years of experience in information visualization with special expertise in the visual representation of financial and economic data. My career as an informational graphics specialist with the Federal Reserve in the 1980s allowed for early access to Internet technologies, sparking my interest in hypertext and the integration of technology into teaching and learning.

I present regularly at regional and national technology and communication conferences on the topics of information design, experience design, creative hypertext, Web 2.0 applications, instructional design, information visualization and GIS technologies. I also teach Digital Storytelling and Information Design online for Empire State College and SUNYIT.

My current research focuses on the use of Web 2.0 applications to establish community and visual presence in the online classroom.

I am an avid angler, aviation enthusiast, and am currently training to be a private pilot. And, by the way, I'm the owner of a 1967 Amphicar.
