I am an experienced web programmer and technology instructor holding CTT+, MCPD, and MCITP certifications among others. I have a bachelor of arts in education, over 20 years of technical training and corporate development experience. My teaching portfolio includes C#, HTML/CSS, SQL and ASP.NET. My corporate development experience includes Kansas City companies such as MBB+, emfluence, ROSnet and SkillPath Seminars. Outside of technology I enjoy spending time with my family, repurposing furniture, doing home improvement and sitting around my fire pit with family and friends.
