I'm the Director of Digital Learning Services for Continuing and Online Education at the University of Utah. Prior to joining the U in 2021, I was the Assistant Dean for Teaching, Learning, and Technology for the Smeal College of Business at Penn State University. I spent 10-years as a faculty member/Assistant Professor of Educational Technology or Web and Interactive Media. I'm an experienced interactive media creator, author, musician, and an award-winning college instructor. I have a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Educational Technology from Purdue University, and an M.A. in Interpersonal Communication and a B.A.A. in Organizational Communication and Human Sexuality from Central Michigan University. I've had an interesting career path that has included private consulting, university administration, training, and my real love which is teaching in the college classroom.
