About me

In my role as an Instructional Equipment and Applications Specialist with Classroom Tech Support, I install cutting edge technology with a focus on reliable operation and program control systems for intuitive use.   I also provide expedient support  when issues arise and one on one training with our classroom equipment and software.

Since I started at JMU in 2014 I have completed my Associates through BRCC and am working towards my undergraduate degree here at JMU with a focus on networking and electronics.  I am proud that I was able to contribute to the JACart research program, where a group of students and professors continue to research and develop an autonomous vehicle system for local senior living facilities.
