As Director of Information Technology at Manchester Community College in Connecticut I drive change in the culture and architecture of the institution's IT environment. MCC has moved from a dated operational model to a highly responsive and sustainable virtualized computing environment. Perviously I developed and directed operations of academic networks for K-12 school districts in Connecticut and served on the faculty of the University of Hartford Graduate School of Education. My background is eclectic and includes experience in architecture, design, marketing and as a performing and recording artist. I believe my lifelong interest in the confluence of the Arts with technology provides critical insight into the dynamic and complex world where technology converges with education.
