How nice and thoughtful for you to leave me a welcoming message. Thank you very much. As a small ice-breaker, here is a little tidbit about me. I live on the U.S. territory island of Guam where I teach within the School of Education at the University of Guam. I came to Guam in 2005 directly after defending my dissertation at Texas Tech University. I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. My teaching and research areas are instructional technology, teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL), and assistive technology.
"The depth of your observations from last night is still resonating with me. I'm trying to think of another interview I've given where the questioner understood the material so well that he/she so regularly (and fluidly) went into new intellectual territory. I can't think of any. Pretty amazing. Thank you."

"Steve conducted the most in-depth interview I've ever been through and I enjoyed it to boot!"
