B.S., Campbell University; M.S., Ph.D., Nova Southeastern University


From 1983 to 2004, I served in the United States Army as a Special Forces Green Beret, with deployments in several countries to include Africa and Afghanistan. I have authored several peer-reviewed papers that are published in IEEE journals and conferences. My philosophy is: No task is too hard if you adopt an “I can do this” mentality.

A few of the classes I teach in the Computer Science department are Programming (gaming and App Development, Java, C++, C#, Visual Basic, Assembly Language), Architecture, App Development, Computer Literacy, Azure, AWS, Networking, Computer Security, Senior Project, Database, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, AWS, and other various courses.

I know from experience, that setting your standards high can be challenging but very rewarding as well. I expect every student to push themselves beyond their comfort zone and seek perfection in every assignment!
