I was born in the Midwest and came (home) to Colorado Springs in 1984. I lived and worked in Los Angeles as a Defense Industry contractor from 1985-1987, before returning to Colorado Springs, where I have been a resident since. I have worked as a paperboy, dishwasher, pizza maker, Defense contractor, computer-aided drafting engineer, database programmer, and website designer. After completing my post-secondary education, I was fortunate to be hired as full-time faculty at (then) PPCC, where I have been since 2006.
