Biography 

I've been teaching at CSN since the fall of 1996, spent three years as the Math Department Chair, and have served in the Faculty Senate for several years. Together with Professor Yates, I have authored textbooks for MATH 120 (published by Cognella Academic Publishing) and MATH 104B (free PDF available online).

My office is located on the Charleston Campus, in Building H, Room 101Q. Since most of my classes are online, my office hours are also virtual. I make every effort to answer email on the same day it is received, with many replies being within a couple hours. If you desire a face-to-face meeting, you can schedule an appointment with me via the contact information listed above.
