I love teaching an interacting with students. I have a passion for applied mathematics. I specialize in Online Education and help train/mentor new faculty. I am also involved in authoring textbooks for mathematics.

I enjoy learning new things and consider myself to be a life-long learner. My doctoral research was on Digital Game-Based Learning to study the effects of using an educational games on motivation, engagement, and learning. I intend to continue participating in research related to this topic,

I am lucky to have a wonderful family at home. We have 3 children (all adults now, 18 and over). Our oldest just had a child and I am now a grandfather!
