Welcome! I’ve been fortunate to do some cool stuff. I am an instructor at Bridgewater State University. I served two terms as an AmeriCorps *VISTA. I studied Social Work at the University of Missouri-Columbia and Psychology and Computer Science at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York. I grew up in the town of Cheektowaga and I enjoy Wegmans and Buffalo chicken wings at every available opportunity.
My research interests are technology in social work, macro social work, innovative social work practice, social informatics, socioeconomic development, and community practice. I’m currently a #MacroSW chat partner. I previously wrote the SW 2.o column exploring these issues for social work students at The New Social Worker Magazine. I’m always interested in exploring new ideas and practices that can help people.
