EDUCATOR

In addition to a 25 year industry career, I also have extensive experience in undergraduate and graduate education.

 

I hold a BS in Computer Image Generation,  An MS in Emergent Media, and am ABT on an Mfa in Digital Entertainment
I have advised 2 undergraduate capstone projects and one MS thesis.  I am currently advising one master's student and actively engaged in 3 research projects.

In 2011, I inherited an aging C++ class and redesigned it to use a top-down object-first teaching approach.  Results so for the fall 2012 semester suggest that I have halved the percentage of failures in the class and over-all improved comprehension and demonstrated student skills.
