My mission both as an administrator and a member of the science faculty is to help you succeed at Indiana Tech. I first came to Indiana Tech in the fall of 1983. Since that time I have been involved in a number of areas and a variety of projects. However, I am particularly interested in building degree programs that are relevant and ones in which you will be successful.
My primary administrative responsibility is to direct the School of Computer Sciences. Faculty members in this department work diligently to make our computer studies degrees valuable by keeping them up to date with the knowledge and skills that are important to business and industry. You may wish to find out more about these degrees on our College of Engineering site.
In addition to my administrative duties I truly enjoy teaching chemistry. For as long as I can remember this has been a keen interest of mine, probably beginning with the proverbial chemistry set under the Christmas tree when I was ten or eleven. In those days (the 60's) they made chemistry sets that could alarm and dismay parents. I believe I did both.
I am married, have two grown children and five grandchildren. I enjoy a number of activities outside of school but my favorite would undoubtedly be travel. In the words of Rick Steves, travel is intensified living. I fully agree. Whether it's eating lunch beside a pet kangaroo in the Outback, or sipping tea at the Savoy in London, my wife and I never return home without feeling that our lives have been enriched.
