My original plan was to obtain my PhD, write textbooks and teach. Well as they say, “Life is what happens while you’re making other plans!”

30 years later, I am finally following a career path in academia. I hope that my vast experience in industry will allow me to bring a “real-world” context to what is taught in my classroom.

My mindset is that students are the customer, and they are here to learn. It is my job to teach them.
