I completed my studies locally (La Salle and Villanova).  Currently, I am the director of the graduate programs in Computer Information Science and Information Technology Leadership.  I have worked professionally for a software development company, a defense contractor, and a private consulting firm.  My background includes development in operating systems, data management, human resources, finance, procurement and sales.  I have also developed very specialized systems for navigation, communication and ordnance.  I also have worked in quality assurance and testing groups.  My technology career includes 30 years of real system development.  I was been an adjunct teacher at La Salle from 1980-1998 and I served as the director of the Digital Arts and Multimedia Design program from 1999-2005.  I teach courses for the computer science graduate and undergraduate programs here at La Salle.
