Professional Experience

Prior to joining the faculty at Geneva I spent over 30 years working in various technology and business positions. I’ve had the opportunity to develop software and lead development teams for applications ranging from military aircraft systems to hospital medical equipment management to church member data management. I’ve supported high-speed networking hardware and software for a global customer base. I’ve had the opportunity to work in a company as small as seven people as well as lead a global team of 65. My most recent project is project manager / owner representative for a $12.5 million expansion and remodeling project for Grace Community Church. A 52,000 sf addition was constructed and 33,000 sf of existing space remodeled to better reach the people of Cranberry Township.
