Biography

David joined the Communication Department as a sessional lecturer in 1996. He developed a number of online courses at UFV and continues to explore the implications of the Web as a platform for online learning and electronic publishing. In 2007 he moved from downtown Vancouver to the Fraser Valley, a change that brought him a little bit closer to the university and a great deal closer to sanity.
