How I fell in love with my field: My godfather bought me a Texas Instruments TI-57, one of the first programmable calculators. I found I had a knack for making it do much more than the manufacturers intended.

What I hope for my time at UM-Flint: I want to develop the students into notable developers, computer scientists and software engineers. There is so much raw talent. Continue research within cutting edge aspects of software engineering and artificial intelligence to further the mission of the university.
