I am a professor of mathematics and computer science at Albion College. Currently I am on administrative leave of absence after a a three-year reassignment to an administrative post to Information Technology that included being the interim co-director of IT (May, 1998 to May 1999) and as the acting associate director of Academic Computing/Instructional Technologies (January 1997 to December 1999).

I have lived in Albion, MI, since 1969. I am originally from Wheaton, Illinois.

I received my B.A. in mathematics (1963) from Carleton College, Northfield, Minnesota, and my M.A. (1965) and Ph.D. (1969) in mathematics from the University of Kansas.  While mathematics is central, I also enjoy teaching computer science and statistics.

I have spent some time teaching abroad: in Paris (summer of 1985) at the American University of Paris, and at the University of Otago (1991-92) in Dunedin, New Zealand.

My first sabbatical leave was spent at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, TN in the Computer Science Department of the Mathematics Division(1977-78).  I was in the GLCA/ACM Science Semester.  The sabbatical was spent at the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR (1984-85) where I was an adjunct associate professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science.  I returned in the summers of 1987 and 1988 to teach in a Master's program in computer science education.
