As part of theÂ Webmaking 101 challenge I am writing a little blog post about myself.
I grew up in the the Southern California town of Redlands.Â After spending several years working in the IT consulting industry, I made the decision to return to school and complete my education.Â Upon graduating from Humboldt State University, Â I made the decision to continue on in my education andÂ pursueÂ advanced degrees in Communication Studies.
The Communication studiesÂ disciplineÂ is diverse and as I have continued my education I have found many interests in it. From those interests I have followed three key research focuses: teachingÂ specialÂ populations of students, social movement studies, and the use of computer-mediated communication in education.
I currently work at both Chico State and Butte Community College. Â One of the things I enjoy about teaching at two institutions is the variety of classes I get to facilitate. This semester I am teaching Argumentation and Debate, Small Group Communication, Intercultural Communication, and intercollegiate Speech and Debate.
