I have over 20 years of experience as a software engineer. I have been through the processes of the J-1, F-1, Green Card, and naturalized citizenship. I developed curricula on UCC History and Polity and delivered keynote addresses and workshops in religious settings. I have also been a technology in education consultant to India, Nigeria, Angola, Uganda and South Africa having developed the Global Internet Video Classroom Model for synchronous online learning.
While Education and Technology are my primary foci with a secondary interest incorporating the arts, I am an international consultant and business manager who has delivered international workshops on economic empowerment. My current research interests include literacy and preserving indiginous languages using technology.
I prefer Mixed methodologies since I have extensive Quantitative and Qualitative Research Methodologies experience. I appreciate the power of statistical representation of worldviews and believe Qualitative Research provides more in-depth analysis of social conditions. The key is to match the two or merge the two.
