Born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, I attended The University of Toledo
on a Track and Field scholarship, and studied Electrical Engineering with an emphasis on Robotics, Control Systems, and Computer Engineering.
While an undergraduate at the University of Toledo I worked as an Engineering Graphics Lab Instructor and began to fall in love with teaching.
After completing my BSEE, I went to work for Ameritech for two years, then joined
the Peace Corps where I served as a teacher
of math and chemistry in the Kingdom of Lesotho, a landlocked
country in Southern Africa. I returned from the Peace Corps after two years in Lesotho, and began my graduate studies in Electrical
Engineering, with an emphasis on Robotics, Linear and Nonlinear Control Systems, and Artificial Intelligence. (In 2006, The Princeton Review ranked Toledo's College of Engineering Graduate School 18th in the US amongst Engineering Graduate programs.) After working in engineering as an Applications and/or Product Engineer for General Electric, Baldor, Axsys Technologies (later purchased by General Dynamics in 2009), and California Linear Devices (later purchased by MOOG in 2008), my college teaching career began in 2002 at Southwestern College.
