I attended UVSC from 1982 until 1986 when I started working at UVSC as a Lab Assistant. Microcomputers were new here at UVU and I got involved early in their implementation. With my help and the help of all the fine visionary people here at UVU, we have made UVU known as a leader in computing through out the state and even the country. Today, I am the Sr. Director of IT Infrastructure Services at UVU. My goal is to always keep UVU at the top of the heap in the state and the contry in regards to technology.
