I represent sgi (formerly Silicon Graphic/Cray Research) in the education market. The company offers advanced high performance computing resources to the academic community and is installed in many of the premier math and science departments throughout the world. We are pioneering research and products in on-line learning environments, visual supercomputing, scientific visualization and distance learning. For the past 4 years I have worked exclusively with the academic community to provide solutions as well as feedback to sgi development and marketing departments to meet the computing needs in education. Previously I worked at Data General Corporation, was an instructor at Temple University at their Center in Berlin, Germany and was the director of a school in Guatemala. I have my undergraduate degree from York University in Canada, a Masters of Arts degree from Boston University and a teaching certificate for adult education from Temple University in Philadelphia. My personal pursuits include work with teenage adoptive children and healthcare/education issues for ethnically diverse communities.
