MusicI have a variety of tastes in music.
I play piano (Classical, mostly).
But I love going to the clubs and
listening to the latest Dance music. When I'm just relaxing,
I really enjoy listening to
(I can hear the groans now), and Roch Voisin is one of my favourite Canadian singers.
Want a blast from the past? Listen to
my favourite group from high school!!
TravelI admit it - I am not the typical "educated" traveller,
visiting historic sites and touring galleries and museums.
I love the sun, and I usually travel south for a week or two during the winter.
What do I do on vacation? Cruise, Drink, Suntan, Dance, Read, Drink, Walk,
Swim, Drink, Shop, and Party. Seriously, I do like to walk/bike/drive around whereever
I go, and I always manage to meet with a few of the locals.
Oh, and maybe have a drink with them...

WorkI am a full-time staff member of the Dean's Office.
I oversee the operations of the Faculty, including (but not limited to)
finances, staffing, space, policies and procedures.
Naturally, I do not do all of this myself; key members of the Dean's
Office (Udaya for finances; Gina for Health and Safety and Space) are but
two of my key assistants.
In my past life, I was a staff member in Computer Science.
I oversaw the Instructional Support Group, which is a group of dedicated
staff members, tutors (usually co-op students) and graduate TAs. I also have taught several Computer Science courses over the years,
and I especially miss not teaching first-year students in the fall term.
BackgroundI studied here at UW as an undergraduate in the
Mathematics Faculty several years ago (no dates).
Soon after graduation, I joined the Computer Science Department as
a full time tutor for CS100. For several years, I continued to take Computer Science
courses on a part-time basis.
I graduated with my MBA (Master of Business Administration)
from Wilfrid Laurier University.
I joined the Dean's Office in 2005.
I was in a band in my high school in the '70's. Here's a
photo of me and my group (I am the lead vocalist).
- Later of course, I changed musical tastes and joined another group.
It also helped that I toned up a bit, because the outfits of today's groups
are less forgiving of an imperfect body. Click here
