Hi ... I'm a (now emeritus) member of the faculty of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Colorado Boulder. The Department is housed in the College of Engineering and Applied Science.

What I Did

While I did lots of things around the Department, the following are most likely to be of interest:

Senior Project

I taught CSCI 4308-4318, Software Engineering Project 1 & 2, since its inception in 1987-1988 through the 2010-2011 academic year (24 years!). The course was a two-semester sequence in which teams of students complete a substantial "real world" project provided by industry sponsors.


I was webmaster of the Computer Science Department website,, managing the content of the entire site through Spring 2011.

Undergraduate Advising

I was an undergraduate academic advisor for Computer Science majors. Since I had very close interaction with both seniors and industry through Senior Project, I tended to be an informal career advisor and recruiting liaison as well. I'm always happy to help former students with references and other career issues.

Undergraduate Committee

I was a representative on the Computer Science Undergraduate Committee. The Undergraduate Committee handles all policy questions relating to undergraduate study, including issues related to the undergraduate curriculum, degree requirements, advising of undergraduate students, and the recommendation of candidates for undergraduate fellowships and scholarships.

Class Schedule Coordinator

I was the Class Schedule Coordinator for the Department of Computer Science. The Class Schedule Coordinator oversees the planning of courses to be taught each semester, the assignment of instructors to teach them, and the locations in which the courses will be taught. The coordinator also works with Academic Scheduling and other units of the University of Colorado to coordinate Computer Science class scheduling with the scheduling of classes for the campus as a whole.

Athletics Liaison

I was the Department of Computer Science Athletics Liaison. The athletics liaison primarily serves as a focal point of communication between the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and the Department of Computer Science. This includes visiting with recruits during campus visits, interviewing candidates for positions in Athletics, and overseeing academic progress and advising of Computer Science student-athletes.

Contacting Me

If you would like to talk to me, it's usually best to set up an appointment. The quickest and easiest way to contact me is by email. Other methods are usually much less expedient.
