Doing what I Love

I love writing software and I love teaching, so I am thrilled that I get to have a career that lets me do both.

Creating Software

In addition to teaching software development, I do it. As CEO of Creative CyberSolutions, I not only co-manage the business, but also do some of the software design and coding.

Seeing the World

I love to travel, meet people from other cultures, learn their languages and enjoy their food. My wife and I have lived in Central Asia and during the summers of 2015--2017 our family had the privilege of living in South India while I was training Software Engineers.
