College of Management and Technology
Primarily teach doctoral mentoring classes and residencies. Research interests include systems science, information technology, sustainability, and strategy. Social change interests include research and presentations on climate change and urban sustainability from a systems science perspective. My career has spanned the information technology, telecommunications, aerospace, and education industries at organizations including NASA, IBM, AT&T, Boeing, and the University of Phoenix. Experience includes software engineering, consulting, organizational architecture, sales management, and strategic planning. I founded 21C Consulting LLC, a management-consulting firm, and worked with major clients in the Seattle area before joining City University of Seattle to develop a new B.S. in Information Systems program. Since 2008, I have been a full-time faculty member in Walden’s Ph.D. in Management program, where I chair doctoral committees, teach at residencies, and am a member of the University Research Review Board. I currently teach on a part-time basis at Walden giving me more time for personal pursuits in life. My academic credentials include a Bachelor’s degree in mathematics, a MBA, a Masters in Software Engineering, and an Ed.D. with a focus on leadership and software engineering. I have picked up several graduate certificates over the last few years on complexity science, global sustainability, and network science.
