I have decided to make this site an extension of my education. I am currently enrolled with Walden University persuing a Ph.D. in Applied Management and

Decision Sciences with an Information Systems Management specialization.I am currently the technology coordinator for Thomas Kelly High School in Chicago. I recieved my Masters Degree in Network & Information Management focusing in e-Commerce from DeVry University. The focus of my studies have been online collaboration, social networking and database management. The focus of my KAMs and dissertation are on creating a new model for eLearning bridging the gap between brick-and-mortar and click-and-mortar.

I decided to get my doctorates after giving presentations on network protocols, kiosk design, wireless communications, and teleconferencing at King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi in Bangkok, Thailand. While there, I consulted with the university on a kiosk design to be used for processing goverment forms filled out by citizens faster from the various provinces.

With this blog I’ll share some personal experiences and thoughts about my scholarly journey.

Upcoming Topics: e-learning, digital media, technological tools, tutorials, and interviews of other scholars, academic and other writers discussing various aspects of the scholarly journey, life in Chicago, and much, much more.

Look for The Scholarly Room podcast, coming soon!

Special Thanks

A special thanks to my KAM Cohorts Adam, Cernata, Rich, and Tony, Wanda Malone at, and Dave Jackson at The School of Podcasting
