Professional Summary

I have been in Television and Broadcast Engineering for over 20 years.  As the industry has moved to tight computer integration, I became more and more interested in Information Technology.  I recently returned to school to achieve both a Bachelor's degree in Programming and a Master's degree in IT Project Management.  This process ignited a dormant desire to teach in an information technology realm.  I believe I would be an asset to any institution that would hire me.
