In addition to teaching in the MIS department, I am also the Co-director of the Teaching Academy’s Early Career Faculty mentoring program, Vice Chairperson of the UGA Teaching Academy Executive Committee, and was a UGA Center for Teaching and Learning Innovative Teaching Fellow.
I currently teach courses in governance, risk, and information protection (cybersecurity), project management, infrastructure, leadership, and globalization.

I am honored to have won over 20 teaching and service awards including a UGA Creative Teaching Award (2019) and the UGA Career Center’s Lee Anne Seawell Faculty Recognition Award (2019).
I also completed a successful 21-year Air Force career, with assignments that included the creation and command of a Combat Communications Squadron and assignments at the Pentagon. I am a Past President of the Friends Chapter of Georgia’s Smithgall Woods State Park and a Board member of the Oconee River Land Trust. My hobbies include hiking, kayaking, skiing, and photography.
