I am interested in languages, especially object-oriented languages, patterns,
and Extreme Programming.. I am also interested in how students learn. Much of
my work involves providing materials for use by those striving to become professionals
in computer science.
I am an avid bicyclist and hiker. I also am a great lover of ethnic foods and
exotic cultures. Pace University is wonderful because of the rich diversity
of its students and its placement in vibrant Manhattan, between Chinatown, Wall
Street, and the South Street Seaport.

In the Summer of 2001 I was awarded the Neil Harrison Shepherding Award at
EuroPLoP 2001. Here I am shown with the official shepherd's staff. Neil is just
to my right. Thanks to Amir Raveh for the photos.
Here I'm being congratulated by Frank Buschmann.

Five of the people involved in the Pedagogical Patterns community. Joseph Bergin,
Mary Lynn Manns, Helen Sharp, Jutta Eckstein (sitting), and Alan O'Callaghan.
Mary Lynn had earned her doctorate the day before. We were meeting at Helen's
both as a celebration and to plan for the next actions in pedagogical patterns.
