What students are saying:

Can be interactive, can encourage discussions and can bring up references, comparisons to other ways of doing, above and beyond what is there in the course material alone.
This instructor was very knowledgeable and answered some of our tough questions. He seems to know the tool well and even gave us some coding shortcuts that were much appreciated.
One of the best programming instructors I've ever had! Good job.

What is your favorite training course and why?
SAS Programming 2 is my all time favorite. Why? Because it is the first SAS course I ever attended after being a SAS programmer for 12 years. After taking the class, I realized that I everything little trick that I had learned on my over my career to that point was covered in this one 3 day class.

What is the best part about teaching?
The students who are always bright and eager to learn!

Do you have any hobbies, favorite activities, or hidden talents?
No hidden talents but I do love to play the guitar and I have a usual collection of vinyl records from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.

What is your favorite movie, book, artist, or musician?
The Godfather
