Department Chair and Professor of Computer-Aided Technology
I start teaching at Oklahoma City Community College in 1990. I was hired as a part-time Instructor to teach AutoCAD to business and industry clients. In January 1991 I was hired full-time as a Professor of Drafting and Design.I started using AutoCAD as a student at East Central University in 1986, using AutoCAD version 2.18 on an IBM AT computer. All you needed were two floppy disks, one with MS-DOS and another with AutoCAD. Prior to starting at OCCC, I taught Technology Education at Killeen High School, in Killeen, Texas. Over the years I have taught AutoCAD at East Central University in Ada, University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond and University of Oklahoma in Norman.
