About me

Industry Education
Occupation Professor
Location Milledgeville, Georgia, United States
Introduction I am a Professor of History and Interdisciplinary Studies at Georgia College & State University. I am currently the Co-Coordinator of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning and am heading into my tenth year at GCSU, the longest time I have been in any one place. I am originally from Texas and have been in Georgia as a faculty member for 14 years, 5 in Atlanta. Now somewhere along the line I got heavily into educational technology. First it was the Internet, then authoring my own world civ programs, and now, well, there's the iPod. My speciality is actually medieval monasticism and the intellectual and cultural history of the Middle Ages. I also often write on modern religious issues.
Interests Classical music, playing the piano, guitar, drums, spending time with my children, and playing with my five Irish Setters.
Favorite Movies I love foreign films, too many to list, but I loved <i>Baran</i> in particular.
Favorite Music Beethoven's Appassionata Sonata and the Emperor Piano concerto.
Favorite Books Anything by Shushaku Endo.

Describe the sound of a moist waffle falling onto a hot griddle.

Rather akin to the sound, if any, of fat cells appearing on my hips.
