Associate Professor, CIS

Miscellaneous Information:


I have been with UCC since 2006, after moving here from Abita Springs, Louisiana. Hurricane Katrina dramatically changed our lives! I've been lucky to have worked throughout the United States, worked for a software engineering startup company, and traveled as a tech support global manager for several years. I work to bring real world experience into the classroom and spend time keeping my Cisco, Microsoft, and EC-Council certifications current, and working in the lab when I'm not teaching class. I'm a certified Cisco Networking Academy instructor and have been an academy instructor since 2005. I'm lucky to teach the networking and hacking courses in our degree programs.

Please contact me if you have any questions about any of our programs. I'm here to help!
