I work in Crystal City, VA, as a consultant in the defense industry and live in Annapolis, MD. I have an undergraduate degree in Operations Research from the Naval Academy and a Master's degree in Computer Systems Management from the University of Maryland. I began my teaching career while stationed at the Naval Academy. I have two daughters and four grandsons. I enjoy sports (especially golf), traveling, and home improvement projects. My experiences teaching online are among the most rewarding in my career.
