I teach math and computer science at Fond du Lac Tribal & Community College in Cloquet, Minnesota. I have a B.A. in math from The University of Minnesota-Duluth and an M.S. in math from Ohio University. I've been programming computers for 40 years since a summer course in 1972 after 9th grade, and I've focused on networking and computational science applications for 20 years. My current activities are in modeling environmental fluids over complex local terrain for applications of the sort which might interest our students.
