Job Description

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Geography’s online geospatial programs offered through Penn State’s World Campus. This is a rewarding position that allows me to pass on some of my GIS knowledge to highly motivated IT professionals around the world. I took this position in July 2000, after having worked as a full-time GIS Analyst with Penn State’s Population Research Institute. My areas of specialization are spatial databases, GIS programming and web mapping. In addition to teaching online professionals, I also developed a database/website used by program faculty/staff to handle a wide array of tasks associated with the day-to-day operations of the program.

Personal

At home, I have a wife, son, beagle and cat.  I can often be found at Pegula Ice Arena playing hockey or coaching my son’s team.
