Oh, and also...

I am a Lecturer at Old Dominion University's Strome College of Business, focusing on Enterprise Information Technology and Cybersecurity related classes.

I am also a visiting scholar at the McIntire School of Commerce's Masters in the Management of Information Technology (MS-MIT) program at the University of Virginia. Current lectures include DevOps, Mobile in the Enterprise & IT Service Management.

With too many years than I care to admit of technology management experience, including 10 years as CIO at one of the largest franchise businesses in North America, I bring a pragmatic, industry-centric view to my lectures.

My current focus is on DevOps and emerging mobile technologies. I also enjoy researching various ways to improve my own classroom efficiencies, of which I share with other teaching professionals through my YouTube Video Channel.
