This is a blog where I share my thoughts and experiences on string music education technology integration, with a focus on Mac hardware and software and the iOS (the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch operating system). From time to time, I may also create posts and add photos from my iPhone via the free WordPress app for iPhone and iPad.
I have always seemed to be an early adopter of various technologies, and dubbed “Mr. Gadget” by several friends. I have been a Mac user since 1992 and an iPhone user since its inception in 2007. I enjoy helping people with various aspects of technology, so don’t be afraid to contact me. While I can help with some areas of Windows, I am a Mac specialist and even spent a summer working at an Apple Retail Store. Someday, I’m hoping to develop an iOS app, but am not yet a programmer. It’s on the bucket list!
For the last 16 years, I was an orchestra director/string specialist in school districts in Nevada, Florida, and Ohio. Currently I’m starting a new career path in higher education as Assistant Professor of Music Education at Kennesaw State University all while working to complete my dissertation for a Ph.D. in music education (minor in educational technology) at the Ohio State University.
I am available to present educational sessions for your school, district, or state professional development conference. I also am an orchestral conductor, clinician and adjudicator. I really enjoy working with people! Please contact me to inquire more.
