About me

Hi. Welcome to my site. Thanks for clicking to learn more about me.

Assistant Professor of Software Systems Engineering

I teach several undergraduate & graduate level Software Systems Engineering (SSE) courses & conduct explorations and research in the fundamental SSE areas of project management (Agile, Design Thinking, Lean), engineering education, and usability engineering (people and humanity-centred design under the lens of the UN SDGs). I am passionate about education, life-long learning, safe-fail/safe-fall exploration, and continuous improvement.

Out in the World

In the world outside of academia, I like to dabble in the world of art (paint (arcylic & watercolour), clay, pencil) and music (guitar (acoustic & electric), mandolin, bouzouki, balalaika, harmonica, drum (djembe, bodhran, Lakota, tambourine, voice)). I am a proud member of the Regina Mandolin Orchestra. In my WAY off time, I enjoy watching the occasional TV/movie, reading, and hanging with my wife, doggo, and family (not to mention I love long, intimate walks by the lake…ha).
