Biography

I supervise the OSU Extension Computing Technology Unit, providing onsite and remote support to 38 County Cooperative Extension Offices and 8 Regional Branch Agricultural Experiment Stations across the state of Oregon. I coordinate and provide training and support in web technologies, digital media production, social media, video conferencing and other online collaborative technologies. I'm a technologist at heart who enjoys helping people learn how to use technology to improve their work and better their lives. I like to think of myself as a bridge/translator between techies and users, with a knack for explaining technology in simple to understand terms, without the geek speak and techno-babel.

    My claim to fame, however, is through my alter ego - DroneSinger - the "Weird Al" of drones, world's #1 composer of parody songs about drones. I create parody songs about drones to bring attention to drone culture and issues, while encouraging responsible and safe flying. I also use drones, robots, music, humor, puppets, poetry and storytelling to get K-12 students interested in STEM / STEAM education and careers.
