Welcome to my Digital Portfolio!

This site serves to share and document my work as a professor, researcher, learner, writer, and consultant. I view it as a work-in-progress and welcome any comments, suggestions, questions, and greetings.


How this site is organized

I have organized this site to reflect the three pillars of a professor's work: teaching, research/scholarship, and service. Each section has items (artifacts) that showcase my expertise and development in these areas, as well as reflective commentary. I have also included sections containing my curriculum vitae, personal tidbits, and consulting information. Finally, although my portfolio includes artifacts that highlight my expertise, I view my portfolio, and my development, as a work-in-progress. There is always more to learn and areas in which to improve.
