I have just retired from Bank of America after working for 23 years. I had worked at the Bank as a Senior Technology Manager and I was responsible for managing a global database team, database design, and database security. I have worked at various roles over my long IT career (database programmer, database administrator using Informix and Oracle, database manager, database architect, information security and risk mitigation engineer, and senior technology manager). I have hands on experience in development, design, implementation, and management of various information systems using different database technologies (Oracle, Informix, Sybase, DB2) in various distributed platforms (Solaris, AIX, & Linux).
My passion for learning never stopped. I always wanted to learn and teach. Therefore, I pursued my dream towards my doctoral program while working full time and raising two sons. I completed my PhD in Computer Information Systems from Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, FL. I have over 15 years of teaching experience in both face-to-face and in online format. I have taught database management systems, database management, information systems, information technology management, and information security. I teach not only to tell the story of my life, T, but also to learn from my students.
My research interests are in information privacy, database security, risk management, and
High-availability database architecture.
I live with my wife in NJ. I have two grown up sons. I play racquetball. I like to hike by
Lakes and mountain. I also love to travel -see new places, meet new people, test new beer, and eat different food. I also do vegetable gardening in summer.
