I am the Digital Learning Manager and I manage the XR Lab with Bruce Wolcott.

I’ve taught as an adjunct instructor with Bellevue College teaching approximately one to four classes per quarter from January, 2000 – June 2020. I have several years experience teaching at other colleges in the Northwest, and from 1999-2014 I contracted with advertising and tech agencies in the Seattle area developing interactive media.
