Doctoral Graduation Photos

Here is a video and several photos from my graduation at University of Central Florida on December 13, 2019, for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Education. What a wonderful day!

Thanks to my advisor Dr. Richard Hartshorne, my wife Kristy, and the preservice teachers, faculty, and staff at UCF that made my research possible, as well as Dr. Gary Mottola at the FINRA Investor Education Foundation and other academics who provided feedback on my dissertation, A Survey of Investing and Retirement Knowledge and Preferences of Florida Preservice Teachers.

The above video is the official complete video of the morning commencement session. I appear at 1:08:56 in the video. It should start at this point when played.

I will continue in Spring 2020 to teach EME 2040: Introduction to Technology for Educators to future teachers at UCF, as an adjunct faculty member. I will also be writing articles and further exploring the survey data I collected for my dissertation, A Survey of Investing and Retirement Knowledge and Preferences of Florida Preservice Teachers.

New Photography Albums

I set up a new photo album page with 5 albums to start. Some are from 2008-2009 and newly edited in May 2014. There is also an album of the Smallville panel at Megacon 2014, and my nature photography portfolio with work from 2006 through 2008.

My plan is to continue editing older photos and working on new photos. I will be slowly adding albums with more photos and Thripp.com will also showcase my music and writing.
