Mr. Patrick Leech
History and Political Science Department
I have a passion for educating (particularly history). Thus, I am always looking for opportunities to teach, speaking engagements, or research assignments.
One of the more frequent questions I get is about the seeming incongruence between my education (history) and my career (information technology). My short answer is that the skills developed as a historian, namely identifying, researching, analysing, and communicating problems and solutions, are the same skills needed to be successful in IT (and many other fields).
Outside of the academy, I have experience in documentary production, historical preservation, and museums.
