About Me

Hello and thanks for visiting my website. I am currently an Assistant professor in the Department of Social Work at California State University San Marcos. I graduated with my PhD in social work from Virginia Commonwealth University (GoRams) and my MSW & MPA from Eastern Washington University. I was trained as a mental health clinician and later moved into the nonprofit administration and organizational practice arena. My main focus is around social work education and nonprofit organizations, which I have been known to work with as a consultant. My research is centered on these two areas as they relate to the use of technology and specifically social media. This blog represents several ideas I am pursuing, and thus may act as a cornucopia of thoughts, ideas, and life experiences. The opinions expressed are solely my own. More of my work can also be found on academia.edu.

Hope you enjoy this blog and be sure to find me on Twitter as well 🙂

    Hey brother, I have some questions about your website. Can I get an e-mail address to contact you.

    Specifically, I want to know if you are hosted at WP and if you have a premium theme.
