I have an extensive background in graphic communication and design including a Bachelors of Environmental Design from the College of Architecture at Texas A&M University, an active consulting business, and experience creating graphic publications for various organizations. One of my catalogues is part of the permanent collection at the Modern Museum of Art and can also be found in a couple of Texas libraries. As time permits, I explore moments in time through the lens of my DSLR as a fine art photographer and enter my work in juried regional and national exhibitions. In 2011 I was honored to be selected to create 2 pieces of photographic artwork for a City of Denton Public Art project featuring the poetry of Karla Morton, 2010 Texas Poet Laureate. As a result of that project, two of my works are now part of the permanent collection of the City of Denton and are published in a book. What a wonderful experience!
In addition to serving as a Lecturer for the College of Information, I recently served as the Director of Graduate Programs in the Department of Learning Technologies. Prior to serving in this capacity, I worked full time in our college as the Coordinator of Accelerated Online Programs for 5 years and before that for 11 years as a curriculum coordinator on a statewide grant. As part of that grant, I created professional development materials, coordinated statewide curriculum projects for Arts, A/V Technology & Communications teachers, and presented papers and training sessions at various Texas school districts as well as local, regional, state, and national conferences.
I have a Masters of Education from UNT and a Ph.D. in Applied Technology and Performance Improvement with a minor in Organizational Behavior from UNT’s College of Information. I am currently pursuing a second PhD in Logistics and Supply Chain Management.
