Adjunct Engineering professoror in the
mechanical and civil engineering programs at University of Wyoming. I teach a full load of courses that range from sophomore through senior year of our programs. I am also a Trustee of Laramie County Community College, which is an elected position that governs the college and has responsibilty for an approximately $70,000,000 annual budget.
Physics/Engineering/Math instructor at
Laramie County Community College, Cheyenne, Wyoming During a two-year
course rotation I teach the calculus sequence through differential
equations, physics I, and II, and engineering courses such as statics, thermodynamics, electric circuits, and
mechanics of materials. Between 1996 and 2009 I partnered in and managed a
hotel with twelve or more part-time and full-time employees and an annual
budget of $300,000.
