My family and I moved to Albany in 2001, from Arlington, VA.
My career has been in information technology, across a range of employers from the federal government, industry trade association, several universities (including a year in the UC Office of the President), and small tech businesses.
I've worked at home since 2003, which has afforded me the opportunity to volunteer in my daughters' schools, including assisting in musical theater productions at both Albany Middle and Albany High, and serving on the board of Albany SchoolCARE. With one daughter now in college at Carnegie Mellon University, and the other a senior at Albany High, I've just taken a position as Security Engineer at Rocket Lawyer, a San Francisco-based tech firm.
My interest in education is at all levels, and I've taught at three universities, including the George Washington University, and Georgetown, where I proposed and developed two courses: "Issues for the Information Age," a continuing education survey course, and a masters-degree-level course for the (then) new Communications, Culture and Technology program.
