ABOUT ME

I would rather know why someone does something than to know what they did. It is through the mores, values and rationales that others use to make decisions that we learn who they truely are. Too few individuals seek real depth in others.

I trust my intellect more than my emotions, do not like mean people and thoroughly enjoy every minute I spend with my son, Joshua.

My motivation to study and work with educational technology extends further than my basic interest in computers and education. For me the use of technology in education provides an opportunity for both innovation and creativity in the provision of solutions. It is exciting to work with stakeholders, to guide their planning and to implement solutions that meet their needs. To investigate emerging information technologies, their implications for our society and its economy, and the potential of these technologies to enhance the teaching/learning process is truly rewarding.

"Results are achieved by exploiting opportunities not solving problems. Solving problems can only return the organization to its prior status quo. To achieve results managers must exploit opportunities. However, in most organizations, its best people spend too much time putting out fires rather than searching for new opportunities..." Peter Drucker

"Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence." Albert Einstein
