I come with diverse and varied experience from many different fields which I have incorporated in to my role as facilitator of student learning. I believe that my role is more of a mentor and coach for the students than as a traditional teacher. Having worked in proprietary schools before coming to Riverland, I firmly believe in the community college's role and function in local communities. I believe that we cannot solve today's transportation related problems such as resource usage and pollution using yesterday's technology and I am a strong proponent of newer technologies such as electric vehicles. To learn about these newer technologies, I have converted an older internal combustion engine vehicle to pure electric propulsion and I have other electric vehicle projects in the works. Being a strong believer in sharing knowledge I have written and co-authored several articles for trade magazines involving unique diagnostic methods and equipment as well as how to effectively and efficiently use them. Following the belief that knowledge should be shared I am a frequent contributor to websites for professional technicians such as IATN (International Automotive Technicians Network).Phone: 507-379-3347
