Former Professor of Computer Science from Weber State University with several years of remote support services for South America, Brazil and the Pacific Rim. I'm a current International Hydrologic Model Calibration specialist and Water Supply forecaster. I truly enjoy mentoring and tutoring motivated individuals of all ages and skill levels. My interests vary from Art to Science to Math and Languages.

Algebra is a must-know level of math that is your foundation to success in life no matter what career you plan to pursue. My math background in Algebra is from a professional level to a user. I have taught adults, Veterans, and junior college level adults.

I have a master's degree in Watershed Science which covers all aspects of Physical Science for training as well as on job experiences.

I love learning languages. My first language exposure was both Spanish and English followed by Portuguese. I use Spanish in my current job to assist partner companies to communicate with their Spanish audience. I also write poetry and lyrics for popular and rap styles of music in English, Spanish and Portuguese.

I have a degree in Computer Science from Weber Start University and taught Computer Science as an assistant professor for 3 years. I have moved from FORTRAN to C during my career.

I enjoy a variety of challenges that students face and look forward to creating a learning environment that fits your personality.
