My biggest hobby is creating musical arrangements for the guitar. I also enjoy playing with electronics and computers. I owned my own company for a while, I created educational games and test prep software. I teach students about emerging technologies at FSU, and so many of my classes are project-based. In class, we use Arduino Micro controllers to make different electronics for smart homes. I can teach programming and software development. When I am not working, I like outside activities like boating and hiking.
